Practice Report/Update2 – 10/19

From the Truman Sports Complex

Todd Haley said Wednesday that his team would spend the week preparing to see Carson Palmer and Kyle Boller at quarterback for the Oakland Raiders.

Palmer was acquired on Tuesday by the Raiders in a trade with Cincinnati. Rumors persisted around the NFL grapevine on Wednesday morning that Palmer would start against the Chiefs this Sunday in Oakland.

However, Raiders head coach Hue Jackson told the Kansas City media Wednesday morning that no decision had been made.

“We haven’t even had a practice yet,” Jackson said.

None of that matters to the Chiefs. Haley said the defense would get ready for two QBs much like they did against Indianapolis when there was a chance that Kerry Collins could return from a concussion and replace Curtis Painter.

“Carson has a long track record in the NFL,” Haley said. “The good thing is we have a lot of tape on Carson and our staff has very good familiarity with his strengths. Same with Kyle, we’ve seen him a number of times over the years in different places. He’s on tape from last week.

“We have to prepare for two guys. That happens on occasion.”

All 61 available players were on the field for Wednesday afternoon practice as the Chiefs continued their preparations for the Raiders. Coming out of the Indianapolis game 10 days ago, FB Le’Ron McClain (neck) and RB Jackie Battle (head) were the only injuries of note. Both were in full participation during the open media window to practice. They were the only players listed on the team’s injury/practice report for Wednesdsay.

The Raiders listed 10 players on their injury report, with six players that did not practice: QB Jason Campbell (collarbone), RB Rock Cartwright (calf) CB Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), LB Rolando McClain (ankle) and FB Marcel Reece (ankle). Listed as limited participants were TE Richard Gordon (hand), S Michael Huff (ankle) and C Samson Satele (ribs). TE Brandon Myers (ribs) was a full participant in Wednesday’s workout.
