The Chiefs added QB David Greene to the practice squad and promoted guard Tre Stallings to active roster. Stallings was originally a sixth round pick by the Chiefs in 2006 and has been shuffled on and off the practice squad ever since.
Greene (6-3, 226) originally entered the NFL as the first of Seattle’s two third-round picks (85th overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft and served as the club’s third quarterback for 16 regular season contests and three postseason games, including Super Bowl XL. He was inactive for 12 games in 2006 as the Seahawks third quarterback and saw duty as the Seattle’s back-up quarterback for four contests. Greene attended training camp with the Seahawks in 2007, but was released prior to the start of the regular season. He joined New England’s practice squad on September 19th before being released on November 20th. Greene started an NCAA-record 52 consecutive games at the University of Georgia, becoming the winningest quarterback in NCAA Division I history with 42 career victories, surpassing QB Peyton Manning’s record of 39. He prepped at South Gwinnett High School in Snellville, Georgia.
Greene will serve as the Chiefs third QB, which means that the MRI on injured quarterback Tyler Thigpen probably isn't good. The Chiefs plan to put Thigpen on injured reserve.

Get this. Herm didn't know that Travis Henry had won his appeal and would more than likely play this weekend against the Chiefs. Herm said, "Hey, I'm underground, I don't read the newspaper." The fact that he didn't know is quite scary actually.
