Chiefs suddenly short-handed in backfield as they place Jamaal Charles on IR (Shutdown Corner)

The Kansas City Chiefs might be in the market for a running back. The team placed Jamaal Charles on injured reserve, ESPN reported, as Charles had been battling knee issues this season coming off an ACL repair last year. The concern is raised now with starter Spencer Ware having suffered a concussion against the Indianapolis Colts, so finding healthy bodies in the backfield for the Week 9 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars is a concern.
