[Kansas City.com] Chiefs quarterback Trent Green had an outpatient procedure to fix a circulation problem and is expected to be back in practice Monday, coach Dick Vermeil said.
Green was absent again from Wednesday’s practice, four days after he took an early seat in Saturday night’s preseason loss to Seattle. After Wednesday’s workout, Vermeil called it a “minor problem” and said he expected the Pro Bowler to play in the Sept. 11 season opener against the Jets.
“Nobody’s given me reason to (worry),” Vermeil said. “Everything has been positive. So I think he’ll be ready to go to work.”
Vermeil said journeyman quarterback Jonathan Quinn, who was sitting at home in Overland Park, Kan., just over a week ago, will get the start Friday at St. Louis.
