Orton Comes In For Chiefs, Gets Hurt
CHICAGO (AP) - Kyle Orton replaced Tyler Palko as the Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback for the first play of the second quarter, injured a finger on his right hand and had to leave the game. His return was questionable.
Orton, claimed off waivers by the Chiefs after he was released by the Broncos, threw a pass on a flea-flicker and was hit by Chicago defensive back Major Wright on the play as he released the ball. Orton was looking at his hand and signaled to the sideline that he had a problem. Palko, who played the first quarter, then re-entered the game.
Orton began his career with the Bears in 2005.
