Jamaal Charles carted off from Chiefs practice

Any time the cart is invoked in regards to a training camp injury, it causes people to fear the worst. But in certain cases, with certain players, the panic might be justified.

According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles just left the field on a cart after huddling with trainers.

While the Chiefs aren’t going to be a ground-and-pound team as long as Andy Reid’s the coach, Charles’ open-field ability is going to get him plenty of action as a receiver out of the backfield.

And their margin of error this year is so slim that any injury to one of their top players is cause for concern.
