The Houston Texans lost so much starpower in Sunday night’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. DE JJ Watt is the best defender in the game and LB Whitney Mercilus isn’t bad either. They’re both done for the season.
From that perspective, the Chiefs injuries aren’t that bad. However, this team continues to lose a key player each week. This week it was WR Chris Conley who suffered a ruptured Achilles. He is done for the year. Andy Reid said they did the on-field examination and determined it was an Achilles, which fans didn’t need to be told because NBC had a closeup on the injury and we all saw it.
Conley wasn’t the only injury. There were a lot of injuries from the Chiefs side:
S Steven Terrell: Suffered a concussion on the opening kickoff.
TE Travis Kelce: He’s in the concussion protocol. “He was cleared by the UNC in the tent and then when he came in at halftime he complained about memory and so we got him out,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said after the game. “He remembered everything in the tent and then didn’t have it once we got inside so we chose to hold him out.” Reporters after the game said Kelce seemed fine after the game.
WR Albert Wilson: Leg spasms. He came out, went back in and then went back in. So the Chiefs will see if there’s anything more.
LB Justin Houston: He had calf spasms.
WR Tyreek Hill: He came out with an ankle injury but went back in.
