KANSAS CITY, Mo. Camo Broncos Jerseys . -- The Kansas City Chiefs defended their treatment of Alex Smith after he twice had his head slam into the turf in Indianapolis, saying Monday that their quarterback passed concussion tests on the sideline and in the locker room after both of the hits.Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder also said team physicians and an independent neurologist do not believe that Smith sustained a concussion.Still, he will be evaluated by another neurologist in Kansas City this week before determining whether he can play against Jacksonville on Sunday.Its certainly possible, Burkholder said Monday. Well go through the return-to-play protocol and see where hes at it. But yes, its possible.Smith was hurt initially when he was hit while sliding in the first quarter Sunday, and Nick Foles took over for about a quarter while Smith went through the protocol. He returned to the game and was hit again on a slide in the second half, and thats when the Chiefs decided he would not return.Foles proved to be everything the Chiefs hoped for as a backup. He finished 16 of 22 for 223 yards and two touchdowns without an interception in leading Kansas City to a 30-14 victory.There was some confusion when Smith was ruled out of the game with a concussion.Burkholder said he incorrectly reported the injury designation, and in fact Smith was still going through the protocol the second time when that announcement was made. He also said statements made after the game that Smith sustained a concussion were inaccurate.I was with him on the plane, talked to him last night, hes been in this morning -- hes absolutely asymptomatic, Burkholder said. Hes had a concussion before, missed time. Hes aware of the situation.Smith isnt the only Chiefs player dealing with injury issues.Running back Spencer Ware did not return to the Colts game after sustaining a concussion -- Burkholder said he did not sufficiently pass the same tests that Smith went through. And at this point, it appears unlikely Ware will be available against the Jaguars.That leaves the Chiefs thin at running back because Jamaal Charles, who is trying to come back from ACL surgery, was due to see Dr. James Andrews after experiencing swelling in the knee.Chiefs coach Andy Reid characterized the visit as routine, but there is concern that Charles has not progressed as quickly as anticipated in his recovery. He has only carried the ball 12 times in three games, and was not active against Indianapolis because of the knee.We dont have any information yet, Reid said Monday. Hes been checking with Dr. Andrews, thats the person who did the surgery. This isnt uncommon. Lets just figure it out and go from there.If Ware and Charles are unable to play, Charcandrick West would be their only healthy running back on the active roster. Darrin Reaves and Zac Brooks are available on the practice squad.Meanwhile, offensive lineman Parker Ehinger sprained his knee and did not return against the Colts. If hes unable to play this week, Zach Fulton would pick up where he left off Sunday.One bit of positive news was the progress of outside linebacker Justin Houston, who is coming back from ACL surgery. The star pass rusher returned to practice two weeks ago and has made noteworthy improvement, though it remains uncertain when Houston will be able to play in a game.Reid said it would be a stretch for him to play against Jacksonville.What were going to do is take it like we have been, see how he does this week, Reid said. If he is ready to go, he can go. Ill listen to the docs and talk to Justin and see how hes doing.I can tell you hes made tremendous strides from that first week to last week.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Womens Broncos Jerseys . They reached the 100-point plateau for the fourth time in five games, bested the visiting Trail Blazers by 34 in the paint and scored 19 of the final 25 points in regulation. Elite Broncos Jerseys . 10 Texas Rangers jersey for one last time. Young formally announced his retirement Friday after returning to Rangers Ballpark, his baseball home for all but the last of his 13 major league seasons. http://www.officialbroncosnflauthenticshop.com/ . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. Trevor Bayliss has hailed Englands performance in the first Test against India as the best since Ive been with the team.Appointed just ahead of the 2015 Ashes, Bayliss period in charge as coach has seen notable victories over Australia at Edgbaston and Trent Bridge, and an impressive win over South Africa in Johannesburg. But although England were held to a draw in Rajkot, Bayliss was delighted with the commitment shown by the side in gruelling conditions and on surfaces on which English players traditionally struggle.And, so impressed was Bayliss with the improvement in his team since the defeat in Dhaka, he suggested it proved England could win the series if they maintained that level of performance.Win, lose or draw, I thought effort-wise thats probably the best performance weve had since Ive been with the team, Bayliss said.The way the guys played in this Test should give us plenty of confidence. Our batters played well against their spinners, and our spinners and seamers all bowled well. We acquitted ourselves very well.Were under no illusions that these next four Tests could be even tougher than this one. But if we put in more performances like that, well probably be playing consistent cricket - and thats what were after - and well have a chance of winning more games. So weve got to continue putting in that effort. But if we do, weve a chance of winning.Bayliss was particularly effusive in his praise for new opening batsman Haseeb Hameed. The 19-year-old debutant scored more than 100 runs in the match and evoked in Bayliss some of the same characteristics of Kumar Sangakkara, who he worked with during his time as Sri Lanka coach.Its early days for Hameed, Bayliss said. But the early signs are that hes a very, very good player.For one so young, 19, his composure is very good. He knows how his game works - something that players years in advance of him woulld like to have - and without wanting to put too much pressure on him, the signs are good. Youth Broncos Jerseys. Hes one of those batters, a little bit like a Sangakkara, who just loves batting. Whether its in the nets, having throwdowns or with a tennis ball in the changing room, he just loves to have a bat in his hand.It was obviously a very good start. Hes been with the squad for about six weeks, but it feels like hes been here for two or three years - hes got that type of a personality.Without committing himself, Bayliss hinted England may well stick to the same XI for the second Test in Visakhapatnam, which starts from November 17. Stating he liked the idea of playing three spinners of varying types - England picked an offspinner (Moeen Ali), a left-arm spinner (Zafar Ansari) and a legspinner (Adil Rashid) in Rajkot - his words suggested Gareth Batty (also an offspinner) may miss out again.We went with these three guys, but we could very easily have gone with Batty, Bayliss said. Hes actually also been bowc this occasion we would have a look at a spinner of each type and those three performed well in this game.James Anderson also looks set for more frustration. While England are encouraged by his progress, he may have to wait until the third Test to make his return from injury with Bayliss requiring a little more evidence before selecting him as one of a three-man seam attack in tough conditions.Well assess him in the next couple of days, Bayliss said. But from all reports, hes been bowling well in the nets. The medical staff say hes in better shape than he was when he came back and played against Pakistan. Well put him through his paces again. Hes a guy whos always looked after himself, so hes nicely fit.
