Travis Kelce shoves Andy Reid in anger & throws helmet as it’s feared he’s suffered injury

TRAVIS Kelce has been embroiled in a furious altercation with coach Andy Reid during Super Bowl LVIII.

After a huge play from Patrick Mahomes in the Kansas City Chiefs’ eventual 24-21 win, Kelce was taken off the field – and wasn’t happy.

Following a fumble from Isiah Pacheco, Kelce appeared furious with his head coach.

The tight end, 34, was seen throwing his helmet on the sideline and screaming in Reid’s face.

Kelce was clearly emotional over the turnover, but got physical with his head coach and pushed him during his tantrum.

Reid was pushed hard enough that he stumbled and nearly fell over before Jerick McKinnon pulled Kelce away.

Kelce only had one catch for one yard up to that point in the game as the Chiefs struggled to get their offense going.

“Travis Kelce ASSAULTING THE COACH … not good for Chiefs,” one fan gasped on X during the game.

“Travis Kelce is a straight b**** for this. No one does this to an old man,” another fan said.

“Really bad look for Travis Kelce running into Andy Reid on the sideline,” third fan said.

“Travis Kelce better be luck that wasn’t Bruce Arians or Bill Belichick cause he would’ve been benched throughout that whole game, win or lose,” one person reacted.

“Travis Kelce arguing and grabbing his coach was pretty wild!!” a comment said.

Kelce finished the first half with only one catch after being on and off of the field after his incident.

He responded in style after the restart, taking 9 total receptions for 90 yards.

The Chiefs won a thrilling game in overtime after it finished 19-19 in regulation, with Kelce sharing a kiss with girlfriend Taylor Swift during the celebrations.

Both Reid and Kelce have since addressed the incident in their post-match press conferences, playing down its significance.

“[Kelce] was emotional today,” Reid told reporters, via Barrons.

“But listen, I’ve got five kids and I know how that goes. The part that I love is that he loves to play the game, and he wants to help his team win.

“It’s not a selfish thing. And I understand that. As much as he bumps into me, I get after him. And we both understand that – he just caught me off balance.”

“I’ve got the greatest coach this game has ever seen,” Kelce said.

“He’s unbelievable not only at dialing up plays and having everyone prepared, but he’s one of the best leaders of men I’ve ever seen in my life.

“He’s helped me a lot with channeling that emotion, channeling that passion.

“I owe my entire career to that guy and how to control how emotional I get. I just love him.”
