Chiefs All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce suffered a concussion in the first half of the AFC Wild Card Game against the Titans.

Kelce was hit on the head while going to the ground after making a catch with just under two minutes remaining in the second quarter. He stumbled when he tried to get up and appeared to be woozy before jogging off under his own power. 

He was taken to the locker room for further evaluation, and the Chiefs announced that Kelce will not return shortly after the second half began. It's the second concussion Kelce has suffered in three months, as he had one in October but did not miss the following game.  

The Chiefs took a 21-3 lead into the half, but losing Kelce for the rest of this game and potentially longer is a big blow. Kelce is a matchup nightmare and is one of Alex Smith's favorite targets.

Kelce had four catches for 66 yards and a touchdown before the injury. The 28-year-old made a league-high 83 catches during the regular season for 1,038 yards and eight touchdowns.
