Brady Quinn did not participate in practice Monday with the Kansas City Chiefs due to a head injury suffered in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders. Quinn was replaced by Matt Cassel after throwing a first-quarter interception. As of now, it is still unclear who will start Thursday.
Head coach Romeo Crennel indicated that Quinn will be given the start against the San Diego Chargers if he is deemed healthy. The Chiefs will also evaluate Ricky Stanzi to see if he can handle the offense in place of the two dinged-up quarterbacks ahead of him.
Fantasy Impact: Unless you are in a very deep two-quarterback league, you should avoid the Chiefs' quarterback situation at all costs. Whoever takes over the offense will either be less than 100 percent or starting for the first time this season.
If you are forced to start one of Quinn/Cassel/Stanzi, at least you'll be getting a relatively decent matchup. The Chargers have given up 14 touchdowns to seven interceptions on the season, and have just 12 sacks.
