KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The injury updates provided by the Chiefs Tuesday evening bore bad news for rookie running back Knile Davis.

Davis, who scored two touchdowns in the opening round of the playoffs against the Colts, is currently rehabilitating a sprained knee and a fractured fibula.

The revelation of the fractured fibula comes two days after coach Andy Reid held his end-of-season media session Sunday.

During the game, Davis was ruled out with a knee injury after going down early in the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, running back Jamaal Charles, wide receiver Donnie Avery and cornerback Brandon Flowers, all of whom suffered concussions against the Colts, are in the process of completing protocol testing.

Charles sustained his concussion on the team’s first offensive possession Saturday and did not finish the game.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has a “mild foot sprain,” while outside linebacker Justin Houston sustained a knee sprain and bone bruise against the Colts.

Had the Chiefs defeated the Colts, the Chiefs would’ve been hard pressed to be 100 percent healthy for the second round of the playoffs considering the injuries.

In the meantime, the players will have the offseason to recover before the team reports for organized team activities (OTAs) in the spring.
