Chiefs DB Mike Edwards in concussion protocol after early exit vs. Bills

The Kansas City Chiefs may be without veteran defensive back Mike Edwards for the remainder of their matchup against the Buffalo Bills after he exited the game with an injury.

Edwards took a nasty shot to the head while defending a pass from quarterback Josh Allen to receiver Stefon Diggs on the game’s first drive. He prevented a reception on the play but did not immediately come to his feet after tackling Diggs.

He eventually went to the sideline with Chiefs medical personnel and made his way to the locker room after being placed in concussion protocol.

Kansas City’s secondary has been bolstered by Edwards’ presence all season, and the loss of such an experienced member of their defense could cost the Chiefs dearly against Buffalo’s high-octane offense.

Fans should stay tuned to see if Edwards can return to the gridiron as Kansas City endeavors to punch its ticket to a sixth-consecutive AFC Championship Game.
