Chiefs Officially Rule Out Top Receiver

The Kansas City Chiefs offence took a massive loss this week as they placed starting wide receiver Mecole Hardman on Injured Reserve, meaning he'll be missing for at least the next four games, but ahead of their Week 11 primetime matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers, the offence has taken another massive loss.

Today, the team officially announced that JuJu Smith-Schuster would miss the game due to a concussion, suffered in Week 10 when he took a massive hit against the Jacksonville Jaguars, which ruled him out of the win immediately. In 2022, Smith-Schuster has recorded 46 catches for 615 yards and 2 Touchdowns, and has become a key contributor for Patrick Mahomes, and while he won't be out for an extended time, any time missed will hurt this incredibly talented offence.

In his place, Mahomes still has a talented backfield to go along with the ever fantastic Travis Kelce, as well as mid-season pickup Kadarius Toney, and with such a key divisional matchup, they'll need to be as effective as possible against a talented Chargers team.
