UPDATE: Alex is BACK IN the game after passing the concussion protocol

Alex Smith took a shot while attempting to slide against the Indianapolis Colts and has come out of the game for Nick Foles. Alex is officially in the concussion protocol.

Alex took a snap and rolled to his right with no one there he tried to run it but a Colts linebacker peeled off and delivered a shot on him as he tried to slide. His head appeared to hit the turf (similar to Jamaal Charles three years ago).

Alex appeared to be woozy when he got up. The refs stopped him and Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder was among those who was out on the field talking to him.

Nick Foles started warming up shortly after the hit and came into the game.
