    Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn kept to himself about the concussion he suffered during the Chiefs’ Oct. 28 game against Oakland despite experiencing symptoms that affected his vision, Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star reports. Quinn took three snaps after the injury, absorbing big hits on two of them.

    Quinn, who said on Wednesday that he’s still battling effects from the concussion, didn’t inform the Chiefs’ coaches or medical personnel about his symptoms in part because he was making just his second NFL start in the last three seasons. He didn’t want to spoil his shot at finally breaking through for additional playing time.

    Thus, coach Romeo Crennel said the Chiefs weren’t aware that Quinn was injured until they pulled him from the game.

    “Sometimes, what happens in the course of a game if a guy gets dinged up and he’s not acting the way he should act, other players around notice it. And then, when they come to the side(line), they’ll say, ‘Look at this guy. He’s not quite right.’ Then we’ll take a look at him,†Crennel said.

    “In the Quinn situation, that’s what occurred. The players noticed he wasn’t right and they informed us he wasn’t right. Then we looked at him and talked to him and found out he had an issue, and then he was taken out of the game.â€
