A scary moment occurred in the first half of Sunday’s game between the Chiefs and Jaguars when Kansas City wide receiver Ju Ju Smith Schuster Injury took a hard hit to the head from Jacksonville’s Andre Cisco.
Juju Smith Schuster Injury fell to the ground and did not move for several moments, with his hands held in front of his face in what appeared to be the fencing response that often occurs after a head injury.

Reports After the Examination
After being examined by the team’s medical staff, Juju Smith Schuster Injury could walk off the field and into the locker room. Shortly after, the Chiefs announced that he had entered concussion protocol and would not return to the game.
Juju Smith Schuster Injury had two catches for 33 yards the day before his departure. The sixth-year pro has 46 receptions for 615 yards and two touchdowns on the season, his first with the Chiefs.
He was in a defenceless posture, but they didn’t feel that there was any use of helmet foul on that play,” Rogers said. “He’s subject to a defensive player foul because the player is making the catch. We didn’t feel it was a foul because he’s hitting shoulder to shoulder.”
Chief is Unhappy With the Injury
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was unhappy with the decision and disagreed that Juju did not use the helmet.
“I tried to explain to the officials that guys don’t get hit in the shoulder and lay around like that right there. There’s more to it – somewhere, the head was involved,” Reid said.
Fellow Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdez-Scantling also took a big hit that momentarily took him out of the game later.
Valdez-Scantling went back into the game, but JuJu was placed into the NFL’s concussion protocol. He will continue through evaluations and must be cleared before returning to practice and, eventually, before playing a game.
The Chiefs travel to Los Angeles to take on the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football in Week 11.
Who is Playing at the place of Juju?
If Juju Smith Schuster Injury cannot play, the Chiefs could see a bigger role for Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, Justin Watson, and Skyy Moore. Valdes-Scantling and Toney had touchdowns against the Jaguars on Sunday. Wide receiver Mecole Hardman did not play due to an injured abdomen.
Lammons plays on four phases of special teams, and coordinator Dave Toub has called him the team’s best “gunner.”
Players Who are watching
Another player to watch is starting right tackle Andrew Wylie, who also left the game due to injury.
Andrew Wylie sprained his elbow, and we’ll see how he does,” said Reid. “He’ll have an MRI [Monday] as we go.”
