AFC West: Rob Bruggeman
I’d still be surprised if Orton doesn’t play Sunday. The team is paying him $2.5 million for the rest of the season. Palko has thrown six interceptions in his two starts. Why would Orton be getting snaps if the Chiefs didn’t want to use him?
In other AFC West news:
- Denver linebacker Von Miller remains No. 1 on ESPN.com’s Rookie Watch.
- Todd McShay has a look at rookie receivers and defensive linemen. There is a strong AFC West presence in the piece.
- Here’s another "First Take" debate on Tim Tebow.
- Denver safety Brian Dawkins talks about Denver’s turnaround in a radio interview.
- Kansas City signed offensive lineman Rob Bruggeman and receiver Zeke Markshausen to the practice squad.
- Denver signed defensive back Tony Carter and receiver Greg Orton to the practice squad. Carter spent time on Denver’s 53-man roster in 2009.
- On-field communication has been a problem in Kansas City.
- Does Tebow belong on ESPN.com’s MVP Watch list?
