Travis Kelce Leaves Wild Card Game After Suffering Apparent Head Injury [UPDATE]

A helmet-to-helmet hit left Travis Kelce dazed and knocked the All-Pro tight end out of the Chiefs’ wild-card blowout against the Tennessee Titans.

Kelce’s hit, delivered by Johnathan Cyprien, was not flagged as under the NFL’s rules, players are not subject to targeting once the receiver becomes a ball carrier. Kelce appeared to possibly fumble the ball on the play, but it was not reviewed.

We’ll update this post as Kelce’s condition becomes known.

Update (6:31 p.m.):



Timothy Burke is formerly Deadspin's Video Director.
