Brady Quinn, you officially have your chance to be the Chiefs’ quarterback.
It has been expected all week that Cassel wouldn’t play and Quinn, who was 3-for-3 on pass attempts after taking over for Cassel in the fourth quarter against the Ravens, would start. Quinn, signed in March to be Cassel’s backup, took first-team repetitions Wednesday.
The Chiefs have a bye after the Tampa Bay game, so I’d think, unless there are lingering affects from the concussion, Cassel could have a chance to play Oct. 28 against visiting Oakland. However, if Quinn leads the Chiefs to a win against Tamps Bay, I’d expect him to remain the starter. Cassel was struggling before he was hurt.
Wednesday, I looked at keys for Quinn to succeed.
