[Topeka Capital-Journal] Faced with the prospect of having only two healthy quarterbacks available for Saturday’s preseason game with Seattle, the Chiefs are expected to sign Jonathan Quinn for at least a couple of weeks, coach Dick Vermeil announced Monday.
Because of injuries to backup Todd Collins, who has a badly bruised hand, and third-teamer Damon Huard, who sustained a mild concussion last week, only rookie James Kilian will be able to back up starter Trent Green.
Though Green hopes to play into the third quarter this week, the Chiefs need a third quarterback should something go horribly wrong against the Seahawks.
Quinn was Kansas City’s No. 3 quarterback for two seasons, but he never took a snap. He played for the Bears last year and started four games, but was not brought back this season.
“He knows the offense and he lives in town,” Vermeil noted. “He’s convenient and a smart guy.”
