Update: Smith-Schuster has officially entered concussion protocol, which means he’s likely out for this game. The Chiefs also saw Marquez Valdes-Scantling go to the medical tent, so Kansas City’s receivers are a little banged up heading into the break against the Jaguars. Luckily the Chiefs are well ahead of Jacksonville on the scoreboard and can likely focus on running the ball more in the second half as long as their defense keeps playing well.

MVS was able to return to the game, but JuJu could end up missing time. The Chiefs were also without WR Mecole Hardman this week. As a result, K.C. used RB Jerick McKinnon in the passing game, the veteran finishing with six catches for 56 yards. MVS was able to return to the game and had three catches for 60 yards and a TD. Kadarius Toney is a good replacement for Smith-Schuster on the waiver wire. Toney finished with four catches for 57 yards and a TD as well as a 32-yard rush.


Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered a possible head injury after taking an extremely hard hit in the 2nd quarter in Week 10 vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars. Smith-Schuster has two receptions for 33 yards, but it looks very much like he is done for the day.

Scary scene in Kansas City as players kneel around Smith-Schuster. He does appear conscious and just got up and was able to get to the sideline with help. He’s heading to the locker room now.
