The Buffalo Bills went out and signed veteran quarterback Matt Leinart on Sunday due to dealing with multiple injuries on the team, but now, they are a bit worse than originally thought. ESPN reported on Monday, Aug. 26, 2013, that quarterback Kevin Kolb's concussion suffered on Saturday could be so "serious" that it could end his career.
A league source told ESPN that the team is going forward as if the concussion for Kolb could be career-ending.
The 29-year-old Kolb was diving for a first down during a preseason game against the Washington Redskins on Saturday when he was hit by a defender. The hit actually came from the defender's knee and straight to the helmet of Kolb.
The quarterback actually stayed on the field for four more plays before heading back to the locker room. He was diagnosed with "concussion-like symptoms."
This isn't Kolb's first brush with concussions though. He has dealt with them before and actually missed time in 2010 and 2012 due to concussions. It is that information that has the Bills' training staff concerned.
Buffalo rookie quarterback EJ Manuel is also dealing with a minor left knee injury that caused the Bills to sign Leinart.
