Unable to dress in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn was cleared to return to practice this week according to a report by Randy Covitz of The Kansas City Star.
Quinn suffered his second concussion of the year against Oakland on Oct. 28, and was promptly held out of practice for the last two weeks in order to recover. Though he was injured while making his second start of the season in place of an ineffective Matt Cassel, the 28-year-old Quinn has not officially been named the starter for his team's Week 11 game against Cincinnati.
Dubbed the organization's future under center by head coach Romeo Crennel in mid-October, Quinn has produced a meager 43.1 quarterback rating over roughly five quarters of action this season. He has also yet to throw a touchdown pass in 44 pass attempts despite three interceptions, and will need to improve his level of play when he does get on the field in order to remain ahead of Cassel on the depth chart.
