[Kansas City.com] Head coach Dick Vermeil said Green would miss Wednesday’s practice to attend memorial services for his father in St. Louis. President/general manager Carl Peterson and executive vice president Denny Thum will represent the Chiefs.
Vermeil said he didn’t believe the absence would pose a problem for Green.
“Trent knows this offense, and we’ve already seen Oakland once this year, so there’s some familiarity there,” Vermeil said.
Vermeil called Green’s play in San Diego “absolutely amazing” under the circumstances.
“He hit 72 percent of his passes and had two dropped, and threw a couple for touchdowns,” Vermeil said.
“He had a quarterback efficiency rating of 111. It’s just amazing. That’s the kind of person he is. He didn’t want (his father’s death) to be the center and focus on Sunday.”
