12 hours later and there's not much more clarity on the injuries to Kansas City Chiefs
' Derrick Johnson and Brady Quinn. The KC Star's Adam Teicher reported on Twitter last night after the game that DJ's ankle injury and Quinn's neck injury could be "significant
". That information was not in the paper this morning (as far as I could tell).
This is what Romeo Crennel said about injuries after the game:
"We got a couple ankles. I think Derrick twisted his ankle. Tyson twisted his ankle. Tanney jammed his finger. Quinn jammed his neck, had neck spasms after he tried to be a running back. Nothing major that I've heard of."
Romeo's fairly transparent about injuries in his time in KC. He doesn't seem to mess around with the secretive stuff like Todd Haley used to do. Normally a head coach talking about an injury wouldn't necessarily mean much because they have incentive to avoid the truth but based on Romeo's history his talk of "nothing major" is credible.
Teicher is the only one reporting on these injuries.
I'd suspect there's more information coming today with the Chiefs having some time to look at it. The next scheduled media availability is Monday but we could get a word in with Romeo before that.
