Post-game update: Kelce apparently did not suffer a high-ankle sprain, per Ian Rapoport. He has a low-ankle sprain and was able to play through it. He likely will miss some practice time, but should have a chance to play next week.

6:26 p.m. ET update: Travis Kelce has returned to the game and caught a pass on his second play back out there.

6:24 p.m. ET update: Travis Kelce’s injury is a high-ankle sprain according to NFL Insider Jordan Schultz. He’s reportedly been given the green light to re-enter the game.

6:07 p.m. ET update: Travis Kelce has officially been ruled as questionable to return to today’s game.

6:05 p.m. ET update: Travis Kelce came back out with the team at the start of the second half and is testing his right foot on the sideline. He had it taped during halftime, so we’ll see if he’ll be able to go.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has exited today’s Week 5 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings with an apparent foot injury. He slipped on the turf at U.S. Bank Stadium and limped to the sidelines where he immediately slammed his helmet. He was briefly evaluated by team trainers before walking to the locker room.

CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson reported that he will get X-rays on his foot and it appears that his day is done.

This is obviously concerning for the Chiefs to lose their All-Pro tight end, especially considering that it was a non-contact injury. Kelce has already dealt with a previous early-season injury as he missed their Week 1 opener against the Detroit Lions with a knee injury. Prior to today’s game in Minnesota, he caught 17 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns.

The Chiefs-Vikings game is currently at the half, so we should get official word on Kelce’s status shortly.
