Charles returned for two carries, but then headed to the sideline for good in the fourth quarter.

Charles was injured in the third period when he got sandwiched on a tackle between Jaguars linebackers Geno Hayes and Paul Posluszny.

He finished with 16 carries for 77 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 23 yards. His 2-yard TD run in the second put the Chiefs ahead 21-2.

Team trainers looked at Charles on the sideline, and then the running back got on a stationary bike for a few minutes before jogging into the locker room for further observation.
