The Kansas City Chiefs were hoping that their season could end in a Super Bowl title but that road got even more difficult right away in the first quarter when running back Jamaal Charles slammed his head on the turf inside Lucas Oil Stadium and was quickly taken off the field and then to the locker room.

Charles, who has accounted for an entire third of the Chiefs total offense this season, didn’t appear to be hit before he landed, but his head striking the turf was immediate cause for concern and after being assessed concussion protocol tests on the sideline, NBC cameras captured Charles being helped gingerly to the Chiefs locker room and he did not look like what he was hearing was good news.

It’s yet to be seen if Charles will come back but if he’s suffered a concussion, the Chiefs must worry about more than just this game should they end up winning without him.
