T. Green Regains Chiefs' Starting Job
The NFL's fifth-rated passer now is a backup. Again.
Kansas City Chiefs Coach Herman Edwards today reinstated Trent Green as the team's starter at quarterback. Edwards named Green to start Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders.
Green had been sidelined since suffering a severe concussion during the Chiefs' season-opening game. Backup Damon Huard took over and the Chiefs won five of his eight starts. He's thrown 11 touchdown passes and only one interception this season and only Peyton Manning, Tony Romo, Philip Rivers and Marc Bulger have higher passer ratings than his 97.6 mark.
But the Chiefs are coming off a loss at Miami last Sunday that dropped their record to 5-4, and Huard completed only 15 of 38 passes against the Dolphins.
Green returns to a Kansas City offense that likely will be without tight end Tony Gonzalez on Sunday. He has a sprained shoulder. After facing the Raiders, the Chiefs play again four days later against the Denver Broncos on Thanksgiving night.
