Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel would not commit to a starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against Cincinnati.
However, it seems like Brady Quinn may get the chance to play again. Quinn told reporters Monday night he has been cleared after missing two games with a concussion. However, Crennel said Quinn hasn’t been officially cleared.
“I think Brady [Quinn] said that he is ready to go, and I’m sure he is excited about the possibility, but at this point he is not officially cleared,” Crennel told reporters Tuesday. “So, I can’t make a determination until I can find out exactly what the prognosis is for him. So, that’s what I’ll do. I’ll find out and then we’ll go from there.”
When he named Quinn the starting quarterback over Matt Cassel a few weeks ago, Crennel said Quinn would be the starter for the long haul and he didn’t want Quinn looking over his shoulder. Then, Quinn got hurt against the Raiders in his first game as the full-time starter. Cassel started the past two games.
It’s not like Cassel stole the gig back. He threw an interception early in overtime Monday night to set up a 16-13 loss at Pittsburgh. I’m sure Crennel will make the announcement at some point and I’d be surprised if Quinn isn’t the starter against the Bengals.
