KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel says he plans to speak to his team about discipline issues that cropped up during Monday night’s loss at Pittsburgh, including an instance in which Kansas City was flagged for a group celebration. Crennel says he isn’t sure where the celebrations came from, but acknowledged that “with the record we have, they can’t afford to be dancing.” The overtime loss to Pittsburgh dropped Kansas City to 1-8.

Crennel said wide receiver Jon Baldwin will be evaluated for a head and neck injury on Wednesday. Defensive tackle Dontari Poe has a knee injury, and offensive guard Jon Asamoah has a hand injury that the Chiefs will monitor. Crennel also says he hasn’t decided on a starting quarterback for next week’s game against Cincinnati because Brady Quinn hasn’t been cleared to play following his concussion.
