#Chargers LB Denzel Perryman was not fined for his hit on #Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins, who left last week’s game and is questionable for Monday night (neck/concussion). Andy Reid was upset about the hit. But no flag was thrown, and no fine either.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 26, 2020
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid called the tackle “very questionable.”
“We’re not supposed to have those in our game ever,” Reid told the media in the post-game press conference.
Watkins tweeted about the play on Sunday night.

The wide receiver missed practice on Thursday but managed to return to the field on a limited basis on Friday — and then put in a full practice on Saturday.
“He practiced in full the last couple days,” said Reid. “He had a stiff neck, and tribute to the kid, he lived in the training room and got the knot in there worked out and I think he feels pretty good right now. So, we’ll just monitor him as we go and see how he does.”
