The Kansas City Chiefs went into their second preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with four quarterbacks. They had their starter (Matt Cassel), injured backup (Brodie Croyle) and two battling for the third spot (Tyler Palko and Bill Stull).
Before the game, Chiefs coach Todd Haley said Stull would probably see some time. With Croyle hurt and not playing, it seemed to make sense that the last quarter quarterback on the depth chart would see some action in the fourth quarter.
However, Stull saw no action in the game.
That makes me wonder if he's going to be on his way out of town soon.
Stull was signed when Croyle was injured and they needed another arm during training camp.
The Chiefs are continuing with training camp (Kansas City edition) through Wednesday so it'll be interesting to see if he's on the roster come Friday when the Philadelphia Eagles come to town.
If the Chiefs thought he had a chance to beat out Palko -- and some (including me) thought he did -- why wouldn't he play on Saturday?
Palko had a decent night completing 14-of-24 passes. He had two interceptions but one came off a tipped pass and another came on a bomb at the end of the game.
Of course this third quarterback talk is under assumption that the Chiefs decide to go into the season with three quarterbacks and not two.
