Chiefs lose cornerback Sneed to injury in AFC title game


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs lost one of their top cornerbacks on the fourth play of the AFC championship game when L’Jarius Sneed went low to tackle Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine and remained on the turf Sunday night. Sneed’s helmet and shoulder appeared to hit Perine’s knee as he stopped him for a 6-yard gain. Sneed lay motionless for a moment, then rolled over onto his back and was checked out by trainers before walking off the field. Sneed picked off three passes, forced three fumbles and also had 3 1/2 sacks this season.
