Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson left the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs after taking a hard hit by the goal line. With the Broncos trailing 34–21, Wilson was heading towards the end zone when he was tackled hard by Kansas City defensive end Frank Clark inside the Chiefs’ 10-yard line.
Wilson remained on the field for a couple of minutes, and walked off the field under unassisted with Denver trainers. The QB was taken straight to the blue medical tent without his helmet and was escorted to the locker room to be evaluated for a possible concussion, and the Broncos ruled him out for the remainder of the game a short time later due to concussion protocol.
Backup quarterback Brett Rypien came in and quickly threw a touchdown pass, but the Broncos went on to lose 34-28.
