The Kansas City Chiefs have come out firing on all cylinders on Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts in the opening game of the 2014 NFL Playoffs in this Wild Card game in Indy. The offense has been explosive so far, despite running back Jamaal Charles leaving the game early in the first quarter after he slammed his head off the turf to be evaluated.
Well, that evaluation is complete and it seems like if the Chiefs are going to keep up this offensive surge for the rest of the game, they’re going to have to do it without the services of their versatile rusher as he’s been ruled out the rest of the game.

Although the Chiefs have been doing just fine without him so far, this is a huge blow to the offense as they’ll need everything they can get from their offense to hold off the Colts. They may have jumped out to an early lead, but this is still a great comeback team they’re facing in the Colts. They need Charles to help keep the ball out of Andrew Luck’s hands.
The rest of the way, the ball carrying duties will be held by Knile Davis and Dexter McCluster.
