Broncos vs. Chiefs: Brady Quinn named KC starter

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs will turn to Brady Quinn this week when they host the Denver Broncos.

Desperate to find some sort of answer at the quarterback position, Brady Quinn will get the start over Matt Cassel for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday against the Denver Broncos, according to DenverBroncos.com writer Gray Galdwell on Twitter.

Quinn won the backup job behind Cassel in the preseason over Ricky Stanzi. Cassel has been awful this year for the 1-9 Chiefs, and Quinn was named the starter a few weeks ago but suffered a concussion and missed two games. He replaced Cassel in the second half of last week's 28-6 loss to the Oakland Raiders and went 9-for-14 passing for 95 yards, nearly identical to the 8-for-16 and 93 yards put up by Cassel.

For the season, Quinn has appeared in four games (his first regular-season game action since 2009 with the Cleveland Browns) and thrown for 308 yards while completing 60.3 percent of his passes. He was a backup with the Broncos in 2010 and 2011, never throwing a pass in the regular season.

The Broncos and Chiefs meet 11 a.m. MT Sunday in Kansas City. The game will be televised by CBS.
