INDEPENDENCE, Mo. - Two more former Kansas City Chiefs have filed a concussion-related lawsuit against the team due to injuries suffered while playing for the franchise.
Tamarick Vanover and Joseph (Joe) Horn claim they suffered post-conussion syndrome and other brain injuries related to their playing days with the Chiefs. In the petition, they claim the franchise minimized any concerns of a connection between concussions and serious health problems. In their petition, the pair compare the Chiefs' attitude about concussions to the tobacco industry and its products and health concerns.
