[Kansas City.com] Amid creeping concerns that neither Todd Collins nor Damon Huard will be ready for the Sept. 11 regular-season opener, the Chiefs have accelerated the schedule for their other veteran backup quarterback, the recently signed Jonathan Quinn.
The Chiefs planned for Quinn to take most of the snaps in Saturday’s preseason game against Seattle at Arrowhead Stadium after Trent Green is finished. Green might play the entire first half and perhaps into the third quarter.
“We don’t have much choice right now,” coach Dick Vermeil said. “It’s amazing how well (Quinn has) done. It’s amazing his recall and his ability to step right in and play.”
Quinn joined the Chiefs on Tuesday. He played for the Chiefs for two seasons and in the same offense last year for Chicago.
