Chiefs coach Andy Reed gave several injury updates during his post-match press conference.
“Jojo Smith-Schuster and Chris Lamons have concussions,” Reid explained. “They will go into the protocol part and do that.”
Now that they’re in protocol, Smith-Schuster and Lammons will need to follow a five-step process to get back into play, Including Symptomatic Limited Activity, Aerobic, Soccer Training, No Contact Club Training, then Full Soccer Activity and Clearance.
The next update will likely come on Smith-Schuster and Lammons on Wednesday afternoon, as the Chiefs begin their preparations to play the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football.
If Smith-Schuster can’t play, Chiefs may see a bigger role for Marquis Valdes-Scantling, Toni Cadarius, Justin Watson and Skye Moore. Valdes-Scantling and Toni saw a touchdown against Jaguar on Sunday. Mikol Hardman did not play wide receiver due to an abdominal injury.
The Lamons play on four special teams stages and have been described by coordinator Def Tope as the team’s best “gunner”.

“Andrew Wylie has twisted his elbow, and we’ll just see how he does,” Reid said. He will undergo an MRI [Monday] We go on.”

Man offensive line Lucas Niang – who is still on Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List – He will start his third week in training again on Wednesday.
