Will Brady Quinn face his old team?
By Bill Williamson
Kansas City Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said he will announce whether Brady Quinn or Matt Cassel will start Sunday against Denver on Sunday. If Crennel sticks to his original plan, Quinn will be the starter. He replaced Cassel at halftime of the Chiefs' loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
The Broncos will know what they face in Quinn, who was with Denver for the past two years.
“I’ve got great respect for Brady. He worked hard,” Denver coach John Fox said. “He was a great teammate while he was here. I’ve got nothing but great praises for him. I didn’t get a chance to see him play a lot for us. Not necessarily by design, that’s just the way it worked out. I haven’t gotten a chance to study a lot of the tape on him in Kansas City for next week. We get to do that today as soon as I’m out of here.”
In other AFC West news:
Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he is hopeful running back Darren McFadden could come back Sunday at Cincinnati. He has missed the past two games with a high ankle sprain.
The San Diego Chargers may be without guard Tyronne Green (hamstring), receiver Eddie Royal (hamstring) and linebacker Larry English (calf) Sunday against Baltimore.
Former Raiders coach Jon Gruden had a special day in Oakland on Sunday.
Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles wants stability and that he means he wants Crennel to get a second year as head coach. It makes sense, but fan noise is so loud in Kansas City, ownership may be forced to clean house.
Baltimore safety Ed Reed has been suspended for Sunday’s game at San Diego for violating player safety rules. He is appealing his suspension.
San Diego has about 10,000 tickets left to sell for Sunday’s game to avoid a local television blackout.
