Brady Quinn not practicing yet
By Bill Williamson
Catching up on the happenings in the AFC West after a travel day:
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn did not practice Monday in preparation of a Thursday night game at the San Diego Chargers. He suffered a head injury against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
The team is not counting out Quinn for the San Diego game, but I think it will be a challenge for him to be ready in time. Matt Cassel may get another chance to start.
The Chargers brought back receiver Seyi Ajirotutu, who showed promise with the Chargers two years ago. They also placed receiver Richard Goodman on the injured reserve. Coach Norv Turner told reporters Monday he doesn’t expect injured receiver Vincent Brown to be back from a broken ankle soon. It still may be a month for so.
For what it’s worth, Turner said he has not talked to San Diego ownership about his job status. The Chargers have now lost three straight games.
Denver linebacker Joey Mays is likely out for the year with a broken leg he suffered Sunday against New Orleans. Mays is a key special teamer for Denver.
The Raiders are dealing with some injuries after Sunday's win at Kansas City.
The NFL pushed the trade deadline from Tuesday to Thursday because of the major storms hitting the East Coast.
The Broncos weren’t thrilled about a hit on quarterback Peyton Manning against New Orleans.
The local television blackout has been lifted for Thursday’s Kansas City game at San Diego.
