Chiefs defend treatment of Alex Smith’s injuries

Sports

November 1st, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs defended their treatment of Alex Smith after their quarterback twice had his head slam into the turf in Indianapolis, saying Monday that he passed concussion tests both times. Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said that Smith passed a battery of sideline tests and additional tests in the locker room following the first blow.

When Smith returned to the game and was wobbly after another hit, he again passed all of the standard concussion tests. The training staff decided at that point to keep Smith from the game anyway.

Running back Spencer Ware did not pass the concussion protocol and was ruled out after taking a similar hit, which has prompted some to question the hardness of the turf in Indianapolis.
