Kansas City Chiefs running back Knile Davis saw extended playing time in the team’s Wild Card weekend loss to the Indianapolis Colts after starter Jamaal Charles went down with a concussion. Unfortunately for Davis, he was also forced to leave the game early due to an injury.
At first, the Chiefs made it seem like Davis had a minor injury, however, it ended up being much more severe than initially imagined.
According to Reid Ferrin of the Chiefs official website, Davis suffered a sprained left knee and fractured fibula.

The Chiefs will now need to keep a close eye on Davis as he rehabs from the knee injury to determine whether or not he will be able to be a full participant for organized team activities.
