Green still not ready

The date for Trent Green's return continues to move back, as the quarterback said Sunday he won't play next week against Miami.

"The earliest will be the Oakland game," he said. "It's all progressing nicely, just not fast enough."

Green's original plan was to play against San Diego two weeks ago. He then targeted Miami next week.

Green dressed out for the first time since the season opener and served as the Chiefs' third quarterback, though he still does not have medical clearance to play.

It was the first time Green played the third-quarterback role since he did it with the Washington Redskins in 1997, a season in which Green attempted one pass.

When Green does finally return, he said he won't have to worry about his head.

"I'm not going to have any greater risk than going into the Cincinnati game," Green said.

Allen has big day

Defensive end Jared Allen took over the team lead in sacks, his two Sunday stops giving him five on the season to pass Derrick Johnson and Tamba Hali, who both have 3.5.

It was Allen's sixth career multi-sack game and gave him 25 career sacks, which is 10th in Chiefs history.

On one of Allen's sacks, he forced and recovered a fumble, marking the ninth forced fumble of his career.

Under his jersey, Allen wore a white sleeveless T-shirt featuring Gunther Cunningham's likeness on the chest, surrounded by a warm glow.

"This is my guardian angel," Allen said.

Long snapper Kendall Gammon put the shirt together. Allen, who is known for attention-grabbing attire, dressed in a suit custom-made to duplicate John Travolta's suit in "Saturday Night Fever."

Welbourn returns

The Chiefs activated offensive tackle John Welbourn to provide depth with starting right tackle Kevin Sampson out with a foot injury.

Kyle Turley, who had not played in weeks, started at right tackle and Welbourn, a starter at right tackle last season, backed him and gave up a sack from the right tackle spot to Leonard Little with 11 minutes left in the first half. Then gave up another to Little in the second half as a left tackle.

Welbourn recently returned from a six-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's drug policy.

L.J. sets mark

Larry Johnson's 1-yard touchdown run Sunday gave him 30 rushing touchdowns and 34 total touchdowns in the first 20 starts of his career, the most by any player in his first 20 starts in NFL history. Johnson is fourth on the Chiefs all-time rushing touchdowns list behind Priest Holmes (76), Marcus Allen (44) and Christian Okoye (40).

Gonzo records

Tony Gonzalez's 63-yard, two-touchdown day gave Gonzalez two franchise records.

He passed Priest Holmes for the all-time lead in yards from scrimmage with 8,328. Gonzalez also caught his 58th and 59th touchdown passes Sunday, breaking Otis Taylor's record of 57.

Waters injured

Chiefs guard Brian Waters left the game in the first quarter with an apparent knee injury after a Rams player rolled into his right leg on the Chiefs first scoring drive.

Waters left the field in an air cast. Chris Bober replaced him.

Huard still shining

Quarterback Damon Huard set two personal bests with three touchdown passes and a 138.3 passer rating.

Huard set career marks for passer rating and passing yards last week.

OK...conspiracy theory time....

The only thing Edwards has said is that Green is the starter WHEN HE IS HEALTHY.

That hasn't been declared yet. I'm guessing as long as Huard keeps playing well and we keep winning, Green is going to be left picking splinters out of his ass.

His return date will continue to be pushed back.

According to the Star, Jared's full quote was:

“Viva la Gun. He’s my little guardian angel.”

It could be argued that Garrard has always been a better QB than Leftwich.

Trent Green >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Byron Leftwich

I wanted Green to make his first start at a home game.

Trent gets full clearance this week, goes through 2 weeks of regular/full-contact practices and starts at Arrowhead vs the hapless Raiders (I don't care what their inflated pass defense ranking is).

Perfect

That would be nice, but do you think it would be wise have Green's first start come only 4 days away from his next one (Thanksgiving)? We can't afford to have him be rusty for either of those games.

I say if Trent isn't ready to start vs. Oakland, Huard should start the rest of the season. That would be over an entire half-season that Greens been out. How many QB have sat for 8 games due to a concussion?

A half season is too long for a QB to be out, before taking the reigns of a winning team.

Yeh, better to have Trent start against Oakland at home than at Miami.

I say Green's return gets pushed back as well as long as Huard is playing good. We really can't afford to **** up something that isn't broken, especially since I see it will take 11 wins to make the playoffs this season it seems like. Colts, Donks, Chargers, Ravens, Pats, still can't count out teams like the Bengals and Jags. The Jets are 4-4 but I think they'll sink by the end of the season. It is SOOO important to win our division games from here on out, especially DEN and @SD, it's the only way we can secure a playoff spot because I dont think 3 teams will come out of the AFC West.

Wouldn't that kind of suck for Green if Huard stays in there and (I know its far fetched) but the Chiefs win the Super Bowl?

Yeah, I think the Monday after our next loss, Trent will (coincidentally?) get medical clearance to play. I get the feeling that as long as we keep winning, the doctors will be overly cautious.

Trent would have to be the unluckiest person in America for that to happen.

Trent will be back for the Oakland home game. I bet he would have started next week if it were at home. Just my gut feeling...

Trent coming back vs Oakland makes more sense. I am ready for him to be back too....I bet Huard will play pretty well in Miami too.
