Third-teamer Tyler Thigpen, who threw three interceptions in a blowout loss to Atlanta this year in his only NFL start, will start at the New York Jets on Sunday and be backed up by Ingle Martin.
Martin was signed in September off Tennessee's practice squad and has not played all year. The Chiefs signed Quinn Gray, a former Jacksonville backup, on Wednesday, but do not expect him to be ready to play for at least a couple of weeks.
And as if all that weren't enough for a team that's been blown out in three games already, the Chiefs also disclosed that punter Dustin Colquitt is nursing a groin injury and may not play this week. Besides tight end Tony Gonzalez, Colquitt has been Kansas City's only consistent performer, ranking second among all NFL punters.
As punting insurance, Steve Weatherford was claimed on waivers from New Orleans.
