Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Jamaal Charles has a high ankle sprain... tough injury for any player, especially a RB. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: What many were hoping as a minor ankle injury is now a much more severe one that will likely sideline an explosive runner like Charles for weeks. Now is the time to grab Knile Davis if he's still available.

Jamaal Charles left the game against the Broncos in the first quarter with an ankle injury. He'll have an MRI Monday but early indications point to a mild sprain. (Source: Jason La Canfora on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Charles might play next week but Knile Davis needs to be owned everywhere. The injury was significant enough to keep him from returning and the Chiefs will be cautious given that they have Davis to man the position capably until Charles is fully healthy.

There is one thing that is apparent after Sunday's astonishingly poor showing by the Chiefs, that unless they can get Jamaal Charles out in space and relegate Alex Smith back to the game manager role he thrived in last year, it will be a long season. Charles understands his role, as he told Sean Keeler after the game: 'We can get worse or we can get good. My job is to get the team good.' The lack of creativity in the Chief's offense was apparent early. Gone were the flair patterns, screens, and sweeps that were so critical to last years success. (Source: http://arrowheadaddict.com)

Fantasy Impact: Charles will be a fantasy factor going forward. While this game was a bitter pill for fantasy owners, Andy Reid is a smart coach and will get back to what the Chiefs do best. With the injuries on the defensive side of the ball, time of possession will be of utmost importance for the Chiefs. What this means is getting the ball to Charles in space and providing an offensive game plan that will play to Alex Smith's strengths as opposed to his weaknesses.

Jamaal Charles and the Chiefs were thwarted by a stifling Titan defense in the opener, losing 26-10. Charles had 7 totes for 19 yards along with 4 receptions for another 15 yards. He did not see the end zone. Coach Andy Reid said that the Titan defense closed a lot of options for Charles to do much. (Source: Terez Paylor on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Don't panic on Charles just yet. Andy Reid is a great coach and Charles an elite talent. The Chiefs will right the ship but with today's losses on defense, it will be an uphill climb for the team.

Jamaal Charles is projected to rush for 86 yards with 1 TD and have 40 yards in receptions this week against Tennessee. (Source: FantasyPros)

Fantasy Impact: He was one of the top picks in fantasy drafts this year and is certain to please his owners. Mr. Versatility is poised for a big year in Andy Reid's offense and is a must start every week in all formats.

According to Ian Rapoport the Chiefs and Jamaal Charles have agreed upon a new 2 year contract extension, and he's on his way to St. Joe for training camp. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Charles is fresh off his 2013 MVP caliber season. Charles finished 2013 with 1,287 yards rushing, 693 receiving yards, and 19 TDs. The Chiefs do have some questions to answer after losing 3 offensive linemen to free agency, but with Charles, he's a big play waiting to happen. He's certainly deserving of a number 1 pick.

It was reported last night by KCTV5's Brad Fanning that Charles may hold out of Training Camp for a new contract. (Source: KCTV5)

Fantasy Impact: Charles is by far the most important player the Chiefs have heading into 2014. Charles, last season accounted for more than 1/3 of their offense. It's hard to believe that the Chiefs won't get this situation corrected in the short order. He has until 2 p.m. central time to report or he will begin to get fined.
