The Kansas City Chiefs lost Justin Reid to a potential head injury during Week 4 but trainers have cleared him to return.
The Kansas City Chiefs have to like where things stand in their Week 4 showdown in primetime against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the current lead nearing the end of the first half. However, not all is well at the present moment with safety Justin Reid leaving the game to receive attention from the Chiefs training staff.
Reid left the game for a stretch to check on a potential concussion. However, it was reported during halftime that he passed the sideline protocols and will be free to re-enter the game against the Buccaneers.
Reid was lost on a long drive late in the second quarter in which the Buccaneers were finally able to piece together a solid drive to put up an important touchdown to close the gap before halftime—an important seven-point swing that kept pressure on the Chiefs in a game that could have felt out of reach.
Reid was one of the team’s biggest offseason acquisitions and their single biggest free agent signing after watching Tyrann Mathieu and other safeties leave in free agency. Reid was signed to a three-year deal to help replace Mathieu and help the defense get younger and faster overall.
Reid has 13 total tackles and 1 pass deflection in three games so far for the Chiefs. He had two tackles in Week 4 before his injury against the Bucs.
