Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' concussion is not considered serious

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles was knocked out of the team’s game against the Indianapolis Colts in the first quarter. Kansas City went on to lose the game and they were sent packing from the NFL Playoffs, but there is some good news for the team’s fans.

According to Reid Ferrin of the team’s official website, the concussion that Charles suffered was not considered serious. He is currently  “improving, and completing concussion protocol testing.”

If they would have been able to advance past the Wild Card round, Charles would have likely been able to play.

Charles finished the season with 1,980 yards from scrimmage and 19 touchdowns.
