The Kansas City Chiefs will face the Arizona Cardinals in the preseason opener on Friday night and the first question, as it is with any preseason game, is how long the starters will play. Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel talked to the media on Wednesday but wasn't letting on how much the 1's will be on the field.

"What I told them was this: I told them to be ready to play however long I needed them," Crennel said, via comments sent out by the Chiefs.

Crennel said that those with injuries may be held back a little. I'm not sure if that includes the ACL crew or not.

"I didn't know how long that might be," Crennel continued, "and I told them the only consideration would be that if there was someone who might have a little nagging injury or something like that, I may take that into consideration and not give them as much playing time. I want them to get ready to play.

"I don't want them going into the game thinking, ‘OK, I'm going to come out after the first quarter or I'm going to only play a series.' Just be ready to play and we'll see how long it is."

He says he wants to get everyone into the game -- yes, all four quarterbacks -- but he's not completely sure if that will happen yet.
