The Kansas City Chiefs QB Battle is Getting Easier to Decide

New poll up. VOTE!

All of the QB drama could come to a whimpering end if Damon Huard's sore calf doesn't heal quickly.

Huard didn’t practice Monday. He stood close by with an ice pack on his chronically sore right calf. He noticeably favored the leg when he walked.

Huard has been bothered by the sore calf during training camp, but this was the first time he missed a practice because of it. There was no indication the injury would keep him out long term, but the Chiefs were unsure whether he would practice today or play in Thursday night’s preseason game against New Orleans at Arrowhead Stadium.

Logic tells us since Damon Huard played in the first two preseason games and had been practicing, that his sore calf is flaring back up. It quietly came to light that Huard had a sore calf throughout training camp but nothing was ever made of it. Now, it seems that injury is nagging him to the point where he can't practice. I hope Huard's calf heals quickly but he has a very short window in order to make that happen if he wants the starting QB job. The Chiefs will more than likely be choosing a starting QB after Thursday's game. If Huard can't go, then Brodie Croyle it is.

If Damon Huard's injury keeps him from playing Thursday but he quickly recovers after that, you can bet Herm Edwards and the crew are secretly happy about Damon's sore calf. Why wouldn't you be? It makes a complicated decision involving many egos and personalities that much easier. With that said, get well soon Damon. We may need you after all.
