KC's Quinn to start over Cassel in Week 8

Fresh off their bye week, the Kansas City Chiefs are prepared to roll with Brady Quinn as their starting quarterback in Week 8 against Oakland, according to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star.


Quinn took the reigns to open Week 6 after starter Matt Cassel suffered a concussion the previous game, but was hardly effective in a 38-10 loss to Tampa Bay. Though Cassel resumed non-contact drills during his team's bye week, the veteran signal caller is not expected to be cleared for a full practice until this week, leading the organization to make the safe choice in Quinn.

Set to make his second straight start for the Chiefs, the 27-year-old Quinn completed 22-of-38 passes for 180 yards and two interceptions against the Bucs, but may still have a viable shot to stay on the field if he can put forth a big effort against the Raiders. Cassel's unfortunate concussion clearly opened the door for the former first-round pick to get a crack at the job, although he will need to fare much better than he did in Week 6 to have any chance at unseating Cassel long term.
