Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had a big first half Sunday night at Houston.

Kelce caught eight passes for 98 yards and the biggest gainer was a 26-yard pass late in the second quarter. Unfortunately for Kelce, he also took a hit to the head from the Texans’ Marcus Gilchrist at the end of the play.

While Kelce returned for one play after the hit, he didn’t return in the second half. He was being evaluated for a concussion.

This was the hit:

Gilchrist was penalized for unnecessary roughness.

Cell phone lights lit up the stadium as the Texans and Chiefs took the field in Houston.
