The Chiefs will have to take on the Chargers this Sunday night without wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Moments ago, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid announced that Smith-Schuster will be inactive for Week 11. The same can be said for cornerback Chris Lammons. 

Smith-Schuster suffered a concussion last weekend against the Jaguars. He was on the wrong end of a brutal collision. 

It's not a surprise to hear that Smith-Schuster has been ruled out. The Chiefs didn't have him at practice at any point this week.  

Hopefully, Smith-Schuster will make a full recovery from this concussion. 

Before he suffered this injury, Smith-Schuster had 46 receptions for 615 yards and two touchdowns. 

Smith-Schuster won't be the only wide receiver on the Chiefs who'll miss this Sunday's game. Mecole Hardman was placed on injured reserve, which means he'll be out for at least four weeks. 

The Chiefs will need Kadarius Toney and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to lead their receiving corps.
