Chiefs’ Travis Kelce Suffers Concussion, Chris Conley Ruptures Achilles

Although the Kansas City Chiefs are rolling through the first part of the regular season, they suffered a few losses on Sunday.

The Chiefs beat the Houston Texans on Sunday Night 42-34 but had to finish the game without tight end Travis Kelce or linebacker Justin Houston or starting wide receiver Chris Conley.

Kelce suffered a concussion, while Houston was dealing with calf spasms. Unfortunately, Conley ruptured his Achilles tendon.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he cleared the test that was administered to Kelce on the sideline.

“He came in at halftime, and he couldn’t quite remember [anything],” Reid said (h/t ESPN). “He was remembering on the field, but he couldn’t quite remember things, and so we just held him out from there.”

The Chiefs also lost Albert Wilson due to leg spasms and Steven Terrell due to a concussion.

Dolphins’ Ryan Tannehill to Miss Extended Time

Published

The Miami Dolphins will be without quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was a surprise last-minute scratch from Miami’s Week 6 victory over the Chicago Bears, for longer than the team may have expected.

According to ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe, Tannehill, who is already ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions, won’t be available for the Dolphins Thursday Night tilt against the Houston Texans.

The Dolphins still believe that Tannehill will be able to play again, and the veteran signal caller is currently not expected to undergo surgery on his injured shoulder as the team is operating with the belief that Tannehill can return to action once the swelling goes down and the irritation improves, according to the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley.

Jacksonville Jaguars newly acquired tackle Ereck Flowers, who infamously flopped for his former team the New York Giants, believes that the Jags will present a “better fit” for him than the Giants presented.

“Great opportunities, great team and I’m happy to be here,” Flowers said,according to the Florida Times-Union. “Definitely a fresh start for me. I like it here, man. I think this will be a better fit. They have a great locker room, great guys. I’m grateful to be here.”

While the Giants gave up on Flowers, despite his high draft status, the Jags are hopeful Flowers can contribute.

“Make no mistake about it, if we feel someone can help us or making a change is better for us, then we will do that,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said. “That is everywhere. It is hard when the whole team is not playing well.”

Texans’ Bill O’Brien Calls for Jadeveon Clowney to Limit Penalties

Published

on

Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien is calling on Jadeveon Clowney to clean up the penalties he is getting flagged for this season, and balance the aggressiveness that he brings to the field out with a bit more control.

Clowney has been flagged 8 times during 6 games and has notched 13 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery thus far this season.

“Guys that play like he does – he plays the game in a really attacking way, and so people are going to use their cadence against him and he’s just got to be really focused on that” O’Brien said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“Then, the taunting call, like somebody asked me if I’m going to – yeah, I’ll talk to him about it, but I’m not going to go down the road of what. I think he just was just kind of messing around with the guy, but you can’t do that. You can’t do that, and that’s what they called and we’ll make sure that he knows not to do that anymore.”
