In other injury news, Crennel said that wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin is being examined for head and neck injuries sustained when he landed on his head while trying to make a catch.

Crennel said Baldwin, the Chiefs‘ first-round pick last year, was undergoing “base-line testing” to determine whether he has a concussion. Along with both of the Chiefs‘ quarterbacks, tight end Kevin Boss and fullback Nate Eachus have also sustained concussions this season.

Tight end Jake O’Connell (ankle) and right guard Jon Asamoah (thumb) were held out of practice Wednesday. Defensive tackle Dontari Poe (knee), tight end Steve Maneri (ankle) and wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (thigh) were among those who were limited.

“We need to build on the effort, energy and attitude we played with Monday night,” Crennel said. “Nobody is happy with our record. We have to improve on Monday’s performance, and I feel like the second half of the season can be much better.”
