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.

Ferrin wrote on Twitter:

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.

    That is a tough one. He was just coming into his own. Hopefully he comes back good as new.

    Davis did his thing. I’m proud of that guy. Just come back even stronger. What don’t break, make you.

    Number 93 of the Colts should be fined or worse for kicking Davis while he was on the ground. Might have caused the fracture.
