Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce exited Saturday’s Wild Card game after a helmet-to-helmet hit with Titans safety Johnathan Cyprien.

The hit occurred in the final seconds of the first half of the game after Kelce caught a ball from Alex Smith. Cyprien came in to finish the tackle, but lowered his helmet and caught Kelce with his head down, leaving him dazed and wobbly as he was helped to his feet by teammates. No flag was thrown on the play.

Kelce was diagnosed with a concussion and ruled out for the rest of the game.

A key part of the Chiefs offense, Kelce had 1,038 yards and eight touchdowns for Kansas City through the regular season. His health will likely be a major factor should the Chiefs hope to continue their playoff run.
