So why did he decide not to play in KC’s 13-12 road victory over the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium?
“All the players wanted him to play, but he just goes, ‘You know what? I don’t like the way it feels,’” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said after the game. “He’s not into that. And so he chose not to play.”
Kelce’s decision certainly could be seen as a wise one. The Chiefs had locked up the AFC’s No. 3 seed before Sunday’s contest, meaning there was no team-based reason for him to be out there.
