The phrase "breaking someone's ankles" is thrown around a lot in sports after an athlete pulls off a nasty move. It's often hyperbole, but if reports are accurate, Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles really does have some ankle-injuring moves.

During Chiefs training camp on Wednesday, cornerback Sanders Commings had to be helped off the field after suffering an ankle injury.

The cause? A nasty juke by Charles.

Note: No video of the play has surfaced.
