This should come as little surprise, as it was clear that Charles had a major injury after he collapsed without being contacted by the Bears’ defense. Charles had to be helped off the field and the Chiefs wasted little time ruling him out for the game.
Charles, 28, is in the second year of his four-year, $28 million contract that included $8.3 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $4.45 million (2015), $2.75 million (2016), and $3.75 million (2017) over the remainder of the contract.
