From the Truman Sports Complex
By late Monday morning head coach Romeo Crennel was still waiting for word from the team’s medical staff on the status of QB Brady Quinn after suffering a head injury in the first half of Sunday’s game against Oakland.
“The doctors will let us know what they think after the tests have been evaluated,” Crennel said. “It is a head injury so I’m going to wait to see what the doctors let me know before deciding what’s happening on Thursday. If he’s healthy, then he’ll go.”
Crennel indicated that he had no sense as to whether Quinn will be available, but he should know by the close of business on Monday, “but you know how doctors are sometimes, you go to the office and you sit around for awhile before you get a chance to see them.”
“It just depends on what the doctor tells me,” Crennel said. “If the Doctor says he can go, then he goes. If the Doctor says he can’t go, he will not be able to go.”
Because of the short week with a game Thursday night in San Diego, the Chiefs are scheduled to be on the field for a walk-through practice Monday afternoon. “I really don’t expect him at practice today,” Crennel said of Quinn.
Matt Cassel will step into the huddle for that workout with the No. 1 offense.
