Sunday wasn't the best of days for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith.

The veteran signal caller had to leave the Chiefs game against the Indianapolis Colts in the first quarter after taking a knock to the head that could well have taken him out of the game by itself.

Despite his legs seemingly turning to jelly, Smith passed the concussion protocol and ended up back in the game. However, in the third quarter, Smith didn't get so lucky after another hit to the head ended his day. Scroll down to see it.

After a play broke down, Smith tried scrambling upfield and found a lane to gain some yards. That was until he met Colts safety Clayton Geathers, who pushed Smith's head into the turf, causing it to bounce violently.

As you were probably expecting, Smith didn't make it back into the game after that hit. This Streamable link of the hit shows just how scary it was.

Smith just doesn't look right after being hit, taking his time to make any movements and rolling limply onto his back. Shockingly, no foul at all was called on the play, despite the fact that the defender pushed the quarterback's head into the turf.

The 32-year-old will reportedly see an independant consultant in Kansas City this week to determine the true extent of his injuries.
