KRAVITZ: Interview with Kansas City Star reporter Terez Paylor

With Jamaal Charles still working his way back from his torn ACL in 2015, Kansas City's depth at running back is being tested.

Smith's return is likely to renew the conversation about how players can remain in a game despite the league's concussion protocol and the presence of independent neurologists.

On second-and-2 from their 45-yard line, Smith ran around the left side and slid to the turf as Colts safety Clayton Geathers was closing in.

Mrs. Smith is not thrilled about the shots her hubby took this week either (Smith would later take another hit and actually suffer a concussion - he was only being checked originally). Ford had two sacks in the victory over Oakland, but did not get New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees on the ground last Sunday.

"That is the next step for this club is to get back-to-back performances to where we can close out a game".

Kansas City increased its lead to 24-7 with 7:34 to play on Foles' 34-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill, who broke free along the left sideline, capping a 10-play, 75-yard drive.

Instead, they cropped back up against an opponent that is 15-2 in its past 17 games precisely because it avoids such self-destructive mistakes.

So for the time being, the Chiefs will try to survive this injury rash just like they did against the Colts.

Indianapolis (3-5), which has not won consecutive games this season, fell to 2-2 in Lucas Oil Stadium. He also lost a fumble, while his interception led to the Chiefs scoring seven points a few plays later near the end of the first half. "But you can't, and we couldn't overcome it this time".

He knows the Indianapolis Colts face a serious challenge Sunday against Kansas City, a team in the middle of the AFC West title hunt.

While Luck went down twice, as he has in every game this season, the franchise quarterback took only seven hits.

Spencer Ware, Travis Kelce, and Alex Smith should all have big games against a struggling Colts defense. The Colts have had many problems since the season kicked off with injuries, a 4th quarter collapse in a game that ended in a loss and overall ineffectiveness on defense.

The Chiefs announced Ware would not return after his diagnosis in the second half against Indianapolis. Both of them were ruled out for the rest of the game along with Chiefs left guard Parker Ehinger, who appeared to injure his lower right leg.

Rookie Joe Haeg again will fill in for Mewhort, with Joe Reitz moving back to right tackle where he has made four starts this year. Hilton returned after hurting his hamstring bur wasn't the same.

Gaines missed last week's game against the Saints, while Schwartz sustained a sprained ankle in the game.
