Tyler Palko is still the starter for the Chiefs. Kyle Orton will be his backup for now.
Chiefs HC Todd Haley from Wednesday's presser: "Tyler’s the starter. We’re getting Kyle ready to play. He might have to play."
The main issue here is the impact on Dwayne Bowe, who has 14 catches for 156 yards in Palko's two starts. He's still startable as a WR2/WR3 with Palko under center. Orton should be an upgrade, but the Chiefs want to make sure he's prepared before they throw him into the fire.
