Things were quiet around the Chiefs facility on Monday. Head coach Romeo Crennel gave the players Monday off, to go along with their normal Tuesday off-day, the Chiefs had 48 hours to spend time with family and friends.
The schedule change also freed up time in the schedule for the coaching staff on Monday so they may spend Christmas Day with their families.
But Crennel let slip what might be considered a small bit of news when he was asked if Brady Quinn will start the season finale this coming Sunday in Denver.
“At the time being, yes,” Crennel said. “Every position is subject to change. Everything gets evaluated and then if a decision needs to be made, it will be made.”
Crennel had only minimal information on the new injuries suffered by players on the roster. DE Tyson Jackson left Sunday’s game against the Colts with an injury to the big toe on his left foot. WR Terrance Copper suffered a knee injury and did not return to the game. Crennel said he suffered ligament damage, but the coach did not have any details or prognosis on his status for the season finale this coming Sunday in Denver.
Assistant coach Adam Zimmer was cited by Kansas City police on Sunday night after the game for suspected driving while intoxicated. This came after Zimmer’s vehicle crashed at the intersection of Ward Parkway and Huntington Road. Zimmer was the car’s only occupant and there was no other vehicle or persons involved in the accident.
Crennel said the team was aware of the incident. “That’s being investigated,” he said. “We do not have all of the facts. We will gather all the facts as well as the NFL and we will see where that leads us.”
