Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is presently being evaluated for a concussion. He took a helmet-to-helmet late in the first half of the Sunday Night Football game against the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.

He briefly went into the blue medical test on the sidelines. Prior to leaving the game, Kelce was having one of the best games of his season.

Kelce had his best game of the season, a few days ago, against the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. He had nine receptions for 98 yards and was targeted 11 times.

If Kelce is out for any significant time, it’ll definitely hurt the Chiefs offense, because he’s one of Alex Smith’s favorite targets. Kelce has led the team in receiving in two of the first four games of the season, including a game-high 111 yards against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.

Kelce was leading the team in receiving when he left the game. If he does indeed have a concussion, he’ll go through concussion protocol first, which would mean he’s going to be a game-time decision against the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday. The two teams play on CBS at 4:25 pm.
