Jeremy Maclin took a huge hit and there was no flag

UPDATE: Maclin returned to the game and is apparently fine.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin ran a slant and was lit up hard by a Chargers defender who seemed to go straight to the head of Maclin. The video seemed to show to me that the Chargers defender led with his helmet and hit Maclin in the helmet, which should be a penalty. There was no flag. The CBS announcers couldn't believe there was no flag on there for what looked like an illegal hit.

Fox's Mike Pereira thought it should've been a flag.

Maclin remained down for a few minutes and walked off with Chiefs trainers. He already has one concussion this year and the Chiefs are currently evaluating Maclin for this hit.
