For anyone wondering if Kyle Orton would actually report to the Kansas City Chiefs, that question was put to rest on Friday afternoon. He reported to Kansas City's facilities on Friday afternoon. But don't expect a quick turnaround for the former Denver Broncos quarterback.
Tyler Palko will start Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, his second career start. Orton could be activated, according to the above Associated Press story, but likely as the team's third-string quarterback. However, Orton will get the chance to overtake Palko as the starting quarterback after this weekend's game.
Chances are good that Orton will become the team's starting quarterback, putting him in line to start the season finale against the Denver Broncos on Jan. 1, 2012. That certainly will be the big storyline for the game, especially if either team is in a position to take either the division title or a Wild Card spot.
