Matt Cassel will get another start at quarterback this coming Sunday when the Chiefs host Cincinnati at Arrowhead Stadium.
Head coach Romeo Crennel said Wednesday morning that Brady Quinn has been cleared by doctors for full participation in practice, but his ability to play on Sunday won’t be decided until the end of the practice week.
That forced Crennel to stay with Cassel.
“I can’t take the chance of practicing a guy all week and then he can’t play on Sunday,” said Crennel. “So Matt is the quarterback and Quinn and (Ricky) Stanzi will get some work too.”
But the bulk of preparation time will go to Cassel. On Monday night, Quinn said he had been cleared to play, but that’s not the word that Crennel eventually got on Tuesday evening about the quarterback’s recovery from an October 28th concussion.
“He is feeling a lot better, doing a lot better and the doctor told him he would monitor him through the week and if he makes it through without incident he would be cleared for the weekend,” Crennel said of Quinn.
