Tight end Travis Kelce was one of the Chiefs players held out of their practice on Wednesday.

Kelce suffered a concussion in last Sunday night’s victory over the Texans and remains in the concussion protocol as they started work for their game against the Steelers this weekend. Coach Andy Reid said, via, Tom Martin of KCTV5, that Kelce “feels pretty good” although his ability to pass through the protocol will be the only determining factor in his ability to play this week.

If he can’t go, the Chiefs will have Demetrius Harris and Ross Travis at tight end against Pittsburgh.

Safety Steven Terrell is also in the concussion protocol. Wide receiver Albert Wilson (knee), linebacker Justin Houson (calf) and guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (knee) were also on the sideline for practice.

  1. Didn’t he leave the game Sunday to be evaluated for a concussion, only to return to the game? Sounds like someone needs to see how he was able to get back in the game if he’s out today. Shady stuff going on with the KC sideline.

  2. If you think he got a concussion due to being big… You have lesser Intelligence than a millionaire taking a knee for oppression.

    Or maybe, just maybe, it’s because often times concussion symptoms don’t occur immediately but sometimes do after 15-30 minutes.

    That’s exactly my point. If you’re gonna take him out because you think he has a concussion, you take him out and keep him out. Player safety, right? Or, you don’t let this meathead sue in 10 years because his brain is scrambled. But the NFL is in a precarious position in not wanting to say football is dangerous, because who would want to play it when they see the older alums slurring their way through a speech. Or even worse -in their minds- people won’t pay close to $1000 to go to a single game.
