[Kansas City.com] It has been 10 days and roughly 1,000 replays since the hit heard “round the league”, and Trent Green still can’t drive a car, toss a football, or do much of anything but rest and wait.
Green underwent neurological tests for his concussion on Tuesday, and Chiefs officials say no timetable was given for his return.
“We’re confident he’s coming back,” coach Herm Edwards said. “When he’s coming back – nobody knows. I haven’t even asked. Because I don’t want to know.”
“I told him, ‘It’s on your schedule.’ I’m just coaching the team. I don’t worry about it. I’m coaching these guys.”
The Chiefs went back to work Tuesday operating under the assumption that Green won’t be under center when they play San Francisco on Oct. 1. On a brisk, windy morning, Damon Huard took half of the reps in practice, then rookie Brodie Croyle ran with a collection of first- and second-team players.
Huard made his first start in six years Sunday, throwing for 133 yards in Kansas City’s 9-6 loss at Denver. Considering the venue and the circumstances, 2,121 days of quarterback rust and playing at a place the Chiefs dreaded as much as three-a-days, Edwards said Huard did all right.
“If Damon can keep playing well, keep managing, we’ll give him a little more on his plate,” Edwards said. “We’ve got to make some plays.”
