Chiefs notebook: Quinn still not cleared to play

Chiefs notebook: Quinn still not cleared to play
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star
The Chiefs still dont have a starting quarterback for Mondays game against the Steelers. Brady Quinn has yet to be cleared by doctors after suffering a possible concussion against the Raiders on Oct. 28, and until he is, the job belongs to Matt Cassel.

But Quinn could be cleared this week in time for him to prepare to play against the Steelers. Coach Romeo Crennel said he would make a decision between Quinn and Cassel as the starter if Quinn gets the OK to play.

Cassel was the quarterback in practice on Monday. Quinn did some throwing during individual drills but didnt participate when the Chiefs went to full team work.

Smith returns

Defensive lineman Shaun Smith had one of the best seasons of his nine-year NFL career in 2010 with the Chiefs so, out of football this year, he had been pestering Romeo Crennel to sign him during their regular conversations.

The Chiefs finally did sign Smith to a one-year contract Monday.

Im off the couch now, Smith said. I get to play some football. I dont have to watch it anymore. Its good to come back to a place where everybody wanted me to come back to.

Smith might play against the Steelers because Glenn Dorsey was on crutches Monday.

Hes played in the system before, Crennel said. Hes been on a couple other teams. The depth on the defensive front, particularly with Dorseys situation, I think that helps us. Hes a big body, a big strong, physical guy. Hes seen a lot and he understands our system and what I want, what Im looking for. I think he might be able to help us.

Smith said he would be ready to play by Monday

I was rusty a little bit but it felt good to be out there with the guys, Smith said. I was signed to do a job, to help out and also be a leader. I think Im the oldest guy on the team now. Ill just try to provide some leadership and just help some of these young guys and help turn things around these last eight games.

Injury update

The Chiefs dont have to issue an injury report until later in the week. But they practiced Monday and Dorsey (calf) was the only player who did no work.

Quinn, running back Jamaal Charles (neck), cornerback Javier Arenas (head), guard Jeff Allen (head), wide receiver Terrance Copper (calf) and running back Nate Eachus (head) were limited in practice.
