Green Scheduled to Start But Huard On Call for Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs Coach Herman Edwards plans to stick with Trent Green as his starting quarterback this week but is saying he would be willing to use backup Damon Huard in Saturday's first-round AFC playoff game at Indianapolis if needed.
Huard won five of eight starts during the regular season while filling in when Green was sidelined after suffering a severe concussion in the opening game. Huard finished the season as the NFL's second-rated passer.
Edwards reinstated Green as the starter when Green was able to play. Huard made another appearance in last weekend's season-ending triumph over the Jacksonville Jaguars, leading a third-quarter touchdown drive while Green was out of the game briefly because of a sore ankle. The crowd at Arrowhead Stadium booed when Green returned to the field.
Green's work was limited during Wednesday's practice because of his ankle injury.
