Former Kansas City Chiefs players and Army leaders say a change in culture about the risks of concussions is possible but must start at the top levels in sports and the military.
The comments came during a forum Wednesday at Fort Leavenworth on traumatic brain injuries.
Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Willie Lanier said he learned the lessons early on.
Lanier, who played from 1967 through 1977, serves on an NFL player safety panel studying ways to make the game safer. Lanier suffered numerous concussions in his rookie season. Lanier says he changed his playing technique as a result.
The military has been looking at the impact of traumatic brain injuries as soldiers return from combat.

The Kansas City Chiefs have shown nothing but pure ineptness this year, working their way to a 1-10 season and they were the first team mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.A Kansas City news station obtained this video, and I’d be willing to be that Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles will take a little bit of heat for what they did. It’s not often that you see players seek...
NFL division rivalries are the fabric of the league.
The fans of the teams associated with the rivalries share a deeply rooted disgust with the opponents with their team of choice and that emotion is one of the league’s greatest selling points.
It’s understandable that Kansas City Chiefs fans are really upset with Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe at the moment.
Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs wasn't just a fan of Peyton Manning on Sunday when his team lost to the Broncos. Charles was also his #1 fan. Jamaal waited for Peyton after the game to get his autograph which he claimed "was for his mom."
Fellow Chiefs player Duane Bowe also waited around for Peyton after the game, but he just wanted a picture taken...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Here's a situation that would send shudders through any head coach: Starting a rookie left tackle next to a rookie guard next to a center playing out of position, all against the NFL's best pass rush.
That's exactly what the Chiefs did last Sunday against Denver.

He spent three games on their roster but was inactive each week.

Peyton Manning is more than just any NFL quarterback. He’s arguably the best quarterback of the past decade, although fans in New England, New Orleans and Green Bay may argue that. So, who wouldn’t want a picture with a future Hall of Famer?

After the Denver Broncos finished defeating the Kansas City Chiefs in a surprisingly tight game on Sunday, Jamaal Charles was quite excited with what took place. Sure, his Chiefs lost again to fall to 1-10, but that hardly came as a shock to anyone who has been paying attention for the past few months.

After leading his Broncos to a victory over the struggling Kansas City Chiefs, Peyton Manning was greeted by a couple of guys eagerly waiting to get the quarterback’s autograph and snap a picture. But they weren’t Broncos fans. They were players for the team Manning had just beaten.
