Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles says he doesn't have concussion, will be fine

It seems that Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles @jcharles25 has avoided a serious injury despite taking a helmet-to-helmet hit and leaving Thursday's game against the Chargers early. Charles was tested for a concussion, but he said that he was told by the trainers that he doesn't have a concussion.
"They said it wasn't a concussion because I remembered everything," Charles said. "... I feel like I can still play. I'm fine right now. I feel good. I came off the field pretty good. I feel like I could have gone back in, but they told me to relax."

Fantasy Analysis:

Charles has quite some time to heal up since the Chiefs' next game doesn't take place until next Monday night in Pittsburgh. He had another tough game last night, but at least he got 15 touches, and he probably would have been on the field -- not Shaun Draughn @2ShaunDraughn0 -- when the Chiefs drove down for a garbage-time score in the fourth quarter. The Steelers' run defense isn't incredible, but I think Charles has dropped out of the must-start range for right now. He's more of an RB2.
