Andre Cisco fined for unpenalized hit on JuJu Smith-Schuster

Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars finally got over the hump in a win over the Raiders, but Mike Florio and Chris Simms think Jacksonville won't have the firepower to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and Co. at Arrowhead

Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster will not play against the Chargers on Sunday night because of a concussion he suffered in last Sunday’s win over the Jaguars.

Smith-Schuster left the game after being hit by Jaguars safety Andre Cisco and the Chiefs were upset that Cisco was not penalized for a hit to the receiver’s head during the game. Referee Brad Rogers explained that decision after the game by saying officials “determined that the defender had set and braced for impact and hit shoulder-to-shoulder.”

The NFL believes Cisco should have been penalized. According to multiple reports, Cisco was fined $6,612 for unnecessary roughness this week.

Smith-Schuster did not practice at all this week and the earliest he will be back is Week 12 against the Rams.
