Tyler Bray didn't play in the Chiefs-Panthers game but he can expect more playing time next week.

With four quarterbacks on the roster, the Kansas City Chiefs changed up their quarterback playing rotation in their preseason loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Alex Smith started the game and played the entire first half as planned. At the start of the second half, Chase Daniel came into the game. But he received just one series. That was the plan, according to Andy Reid.

From there, it was Aaron Murray and not Tyler Bray who came in. In the first preseason game and in the regular quarterback rotation during camp, it was Bray after Daniel. So that was interesting that it was Murray first.

Andy Reid said after the game that Smith and Bray would see more playing time in the third preseason game while Daniel and Murray may not see as much.

"The majority will go to the other two guys," Reid said of Smith and Bray in next week's preseason game.

The third preseason game is generally the one where you see the starters playing longer, possibly into the second half. A lot of teams, including Andy Reid last year, treat the third game as the dress rehearsal while resting a lot of players in the fourth and final preseason game.

Does this QB playing rotation sound about right to you?
