KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Tyler Thigpen, a second-year pro who set
passing records as an All-American for Coastal Carolina, will start
at quarterback for the Chiefs on Sunday against Atlanta.
Kansas City coach Herm Edwards made the announcement Wednesday. Thigpen came in for Damon Huard last week and hit 14 of 33 passes for 151 yards and one touchdown and one interception in a
23-8 loss to the Oakland Raiders. His only other game action came
in 2007 in a 24-10 loss to San Diego.
