Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel held his customary post-OTA press conference yesterday and we've got a few quotes from it.

Q: How do your quarterbacks look so far?

A: "I think that they're doing pretty good. I think they're beginning to gain a command of the system and some of the checks that we have in place. They're all doing well. Probably, Brady (Quinn) and Matt (Cassel) are a little ahead of (Ricky) Stanzi right now, but they're all working at it. They're a good group in that room, so we feel good about them."

More after the jump.

Q: Dwayne Bowe is not here. What are your thoughts about that? Is there anything you can do as a head coach or do you leave that to the people upstairs?

A: "There's nothing really I can do. The people upstairs are the guys who have to do it. I can only work with the guys who are here. Hopefully, Dwayne will be here at some point. Hopefully, sooner rather than later, but until he gets here, there's nothing I can do."

Q: What about [injuries to] Jeff Allen and Cyrus Gray?

A: "I really don't have a timetable because the injuries are different for different players, and they heal differently. Basically, Cyrus has missed all week. Jeff missed two days. So, after this long weekend and a weekend of treatment, we'll see where they are. Like I said, hopefully we can get them back on the field next week."

Q: Did moving Dexter McCluster to receiver have anything to do with what you saw out of him last year or didn't see out of him?

A: "No, it really didn't have anything to do with that. Here is a guy who has a special talent, and Brian (Daboll), he looked at that talent and felt like maybe we should take a look at him at receiver to see if his talents could benefit us at receiver, considering what our situation was without the leading receiver on the team. Let's take a look at him to see what we have and then we can kind of go from there. That's why I think we moved him there to see what we can find out how he would adapt to that position and how that could help us."
