Chiefs injuries include Travis Kelce, Chris Conley and others

Travis Kelce’s concussion and Chris Conley’s Achilles rupture lead the list 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...

How the Kansas City Chiefs will replace Chris Conley

How the Kansas City Chiefs will replace Chris Conley

A 5-0 start doesn’t mean the Kansas City Chiefs have escaped unscathed. Injuries continue to pile up for this team. GM Brett Veach and the depth chart continue to be tested. WR Chris Conley was the latest to fall, rupturing his Achilles late in the Chiefs win over the Texans. As is the mantra in football, it’s next man up. Who will be the next man up though? First, let’s talk about Conley’s role. He predominately plays what we call the X receiver. That’s what I was taught it as and how I chart it. Conley played the X receiver on a little over 81 percent of snaps in the first four...

Houston Texans Injury News: Whitney Mercilus Tears Pectoral Muscle, Out For Season

If Texans fans didn’t have bad luck, why, we’d have no luck at all. Your Houston Texans lost two of their best three defensive players in the Sunday Night Football loss to the Chiefs tonight. Whitney Mercilus got hurt first and left the field with a “chest injury.” Then J.J. Watt got hurt on the same series and was eventually determined to have suffered a season-ending leg injury. Now we’ve learned that Mercilus’ injury is also of the season-ending variety, because when it rains it pours. #Texans Whitney Mercilus has a torn pectoral and will be out for the year. Huge blow...

Chiefs’ Chris Conley is done for the year

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Houston Texans on Sunday night but it wasn’t all good news. WR Chris Conley has been lost for the season with an Achilles injury. The replays showed what looked clearly like an Achilles popping. Conley was recovering an onside kick and without contact from someone else he went down. The replays zoomed right in on his leg and showed it. Achilles tears are season-ending injuries, as Chiefs fans know. It’s the same injury that Derrick Johnson had last year and the same one that Eric Berry had earlier this year. Conley is not a big producer with a lot of...

If tests confirm that Conley does, in fact, have a ruptured Achilles he would, obviously, be out for the season. Conley recovered an onside kicker and replays showed something pop in his calf, which … The post Chiefs Believe WR Chris Conley Is Out For Season With Ruptured Achilles appeared first on NFLTradeRumors.co.

Some fun Alex Smith stats and a list of people calling him the MVP so far

KC Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 29/37 passes against the Houston Texans for 324 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

This gives Alex 1,391 yards in five games this season and 11 touchdown passes. It’s the best start of his career and one of the best starts in recent memory as you’ll see with these fun stats below. Alex Smith has a 76.6% completion percentage on the season. That is 5% higher than any other QB— Nathan Jahnke...

Sunday Night Football open thread: Chiefs at Texans

Come forget about Lions football for three hours and enjoy a meaningless AFC game. It’s always a rough night when the Detroit Lions lose, and it’s never made any better when Aaron Rodgers goes out there and makes a Matthew Stafford-esque comeback win on the road. But this is the NFL and narratives change from week to week. The Lions aren’t doomed to fail for the rest of the season, just like the Packers aren’t going to be able to pull magic out of their behind every week. The season is young, and there is much football to be played. Like tonight’s “Sunday Night Football”...
