Kelce took a hard hit towards the end of the first half.
Travis Kelce took a hard shot at the end of the first half during Saturdays Wild Card matchup against the Titans. Kelce stayed down on the ground, was wobbly getting up, and lost posession of the ball after contact.
Kelce was having a great game at the time, catching a touchdown in the first quarter.
Kelce will now definitely be in concussion protocol, and his status to return to the game is questionable. The Chiefs have a lead this week, but would need Kelce next week for a game against either Pittsburgh or New England.
Kelce is having his best NFL season, and finished with a career-high eight TD catches. He surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for the second consecutive season, and was named tp a third straight Pro Bowl.
Without Kelce, Alex Smith will lean on DeMarcus Robinson and Tyreek Hill as his primary receivers. The Chiefs have also leaned on Kareem Hunt, who finished the first half with a rushing touchdown and three catches.
