Coach Romeo Crennel told The Associated Press on Monday that Quinn is being evaluated for a possible concussion. He was injured in the opening quarter of Sunday's 26-16 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Crennel said Quinn will start against San Diego if he's cleared to play by team doctors. If he can't go, Matt Cassel will continue his strange season under center just a week after he was benched. Quinn wasn't at the team's facility Monday, leaving Cassel to guide the starters through a walk-through. The sticky issue here is time; the Chiefs face a condensed week of practices.

"Cassel will take those turns, but then when the doctor lets me know I'll make a decision," Crennel told the Associated Press. "If (Quinn is) healthy and he can go, he'll go. We'll wait to see what happens."

The Chiefs have issues all over the field. They lack direction on offense, and Crennel struggled to produce answers after Sunday's loss. Asked why running back Jamaal Charles had just five carries against Oakland, the coach thought for a few seconds before saying, "I'm not exactly sure."

Neither are we, friend. Neither are we.
