Tight end Travis Kelce sat out the second half with a concussion. It’s too early to tell if Kelce will be able to play next Sunday when the Chiefs take on the Steelers at Arrowhead. Kelce has to pass a five step process before he can play again and on average, NFL players miss about one of two games after a concussion.
Kelce went up for a great catch in the second quarter but when he came down, Texan defender Marcus Gilchrist hit him helmet to helmet, causing Kelce’s neck to snap and then bounce against the turf. He was taken off the field and immediately began the NFL concussion protocol.
They took Kelce under the blue tent with the team doctor, and he appeared to be good enough to get back in the game, which he did for one play. At halftime, Kelce complained of being disoriented and memory loss, so the team doctor pulled him from the rest of the game, the story said.
