Earlier today, we noted that Jamaal Charles was carted off in the early stages of the Chiefs getting the tar kicked out of them by the Lions. (Final score? An embarrassing 48-3 whipping at Ford Field.)

CBS Sports' Randy Cross told the guys at Fantasy Football Live that he believed Charles could be lost for the season, and now a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Charles is likely done for the year after tearing his ACL.

Charles was carted off in the first quarter after taking an awkward step while running out of bounds and eventually had the Lions mascot land on him. He was listed as questionable but never returned to the game, and now it appears he won't return this season.

It's a(nother) tremendous blow to a Chiefs team that couldn't possibly have gotten off on a worse foot in terms of trying to defend their AFC West title -- they've now been blown out by both the Bills and the Lions in the first two weeks of the season while managing to lose three of the best players (Charles, Eric Berry, Tony Moeaki) for the season.

@Tippy:

That's some horrible luck my friend. Better hit that waiver wire hard!!  If he's available, I like Dexter McCluster to do some damage this year.

I'm "That Guy" this year... 

    <span style="color: #000000;">Can you believe I offered Charles for Stafford earlier this week and the trade was ready to go through and I pulled it off the table!  Can you believe my one WR is Colston and my Kicker in week one was Keating....  can you believe my TE is Hernadez who has an undisclosed knee injury and my 2 WR yesterday was Malcolm Floyd after 60 yards hurts his knee and to make this all that much more painful...  My other RB is No-Show Moreno...  WTF!!!!

What a tough break for the Chiefs and Jamaal Charles.  The Chiefs do have a pair of backs that can fill in and relieve some of the loss of a tremendous threat like Charles (Jones, McCluster) but they still look like a team in major disarray.  Last place in the AFC West is looking pretty rock solid right now...

This is a bad break to the Chiefs.  They are having a horrible start to the season and this will ensure them an average season at best.  Charles is a very good runner and has a great career in front of him.
