Injury Update: Coach Reid Provides an Update on Travis Kelce, Others

Posted Oct 9, 2017

Reid provided more information on Travis Kelce, Chris Conley, and the other injured players from Sunday night’s win

The Kansas City Chiefs were dealt a handful of injuries in Sunday night’s win over the Houston Texans, notably to tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Chris Conley.

Kelce, who hauled in eight catches for 98 yards in the first half, did not return to action in the second half as he was evaluated for a concussion.

Head Coach Andy Reid provided an update on the All-Pro tight end following the game.  

“Kelce has a concussion. He was cleared by the UNC (unaffiliated neurological consultants), but then when he came in at halftime he complained about his memory,” Reid said. “He remembered everything in the (injury) tent, but didn’t have it once we got inside (the locker room), so we chose to hold him out.”

Conley had three catches for 46 yards prior to injuring his Achilles tendon with just over two minutes remaining in the game.

“It looks like he has a ruptured Achilles,” Reid said. “That was the on-field observation there, but they’re pretty accurate with those.”

Wide receiver Albert Wilson was dealing with a leg spasm towards the end of the game.

“We’ll just have to see on that,” Reid said. “He came back in and then went back out again - it started bothering him.”

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill (ankle) and linebacker Justin Houston (calf) sustained minor injuries but are both fine, according to Reid.

Safety Steven Terrell suffered a concussion covering on special teams on the game’s opening kickoff.
