AFC West: Rob Bruggeman

Kyle Orton gets practice snaps

November, 30, 2011
Kansas City coach Todd Haley said newly claimed quarterback Kyle Orton will get about 40 percent of the repetitions in practice this week. Haley continues to say Tyler Palko is the team’s starter for now, but he isn’t ruling anything out.

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?
