(Kansas City, MO)  —  Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Eric Winston didn’t hold back his feelings about the home fans at Arrowhead Stadium following Sunday’s 9-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.  Winston blasted the crowd for cheering when quarterback Matt Cassel exited the game with a head injury.  Cassel was later diagnosed with a concussion.  Winston said fans should be ashamed if they applauded any injury.  He added that NFL players work hard and that people need to recognize that they play a dangerous game that carries risks.
