It has taken Trent Green far longer to start a regular season game than he could possibly have dreamed in the spring of 1999, when he bolted the Washington Redskins and signed a four-year, $16 million free agent contract to come back to his childhood home and quarterback the St. Louis Rams.

Kenechi Udeze, a starting defensive end for USC's 2003 national championship team and a four-year starter for the Minnesota Vikings, has leukemia, two Minnesota television stations reported Monday. KSTP reported that Udeze, 24, is still undergoing tests and it could be several weeks before the severity of the cancer is known. The station did not reveal its source for the story on its website. KMSP also reported the news.

The Kansas City Chiefs acquired quarterback Trent Green from the St. Louis Rams on Friday night for the Chiefs' first-round draft pick, the 12th choice overall. "It's a done deal," said Chief Coach Dick Vermeil, who coached Green with the Rams. "They give us Trent Green and their fifth-round choice and don't re-sign Tony Horne." The Chiefs had been talking with the Rams for more than a month.

Those few Kansas City fans who booed Trent Green in the first quarter Thursday were probably ready to beg him to come back in the fourth. Green looked sharp in his first appearance in Arrowhead Stadium since insisting on a trade to Miami during the off-season. The Chiefs, on the other hand, mostly looked lifeless for the second straight week while trying to find a new quarterback and limp along without holdout running back Larry Johnson.

Quarterback Trent Green scored three touchdowns Saturday and Vaughn Dunbar rushed for 205 yards as Indiana rallied for a 28-20 Big Ten victory over Wisconsin. Wisconsin, 3-4 overall and 0-4 in the Big Ten, took a 17-0 halftime lead before the Hoosiers (4-2-1, 3-1), playing without Coach Bill Mallory, battled back. Mallory was suspended from Saturday's game for violating a Big Ten rule by criticizing game officials and conference personnel after Indiana's 24-16 loss at Michigan a week earlier.

Quarterback Trent Green sustained a "very, very severe concussion" when his head was slammed into the ground while being tackled by Cincinnati's Robert Geathers and will be hospitalized at least until today, the Kansas City Chiefs said Monday. "He's feeling much better," Chiefs President Carl Peterson said. "But he has a very king-sized headache. Hopefully he'll be able to go home tomorrow." The two-time Pro bowl quarterback will be listed as questionable this week at Denver.

Trent Green was perfect. In their own sad and historic way, so were the Detroit Lions. Becoming just the second quarterback this season with a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3, Green threw three touchdown passes in a 45-17 victory that clinched Kansas City's first AFC West title since 1997. The Lions (4-10), despite their first 100-yard rushing game in more than a year, did what they've done without fail for almost three full seasons, losing on the road.

This would be a good week for Trent Green bashers to give it a rest. With his finest game since 1999, Green threw five touchdown passes--three to Tony Gonzalez--to lead Kansas City past previously unbeaten Miami, 48-30, Sunday. He even ran for 48 yards and threw a textbook block on Priest Holmes' touchdown run. "It's fun to have a day like that," said Green, who completed 24 of 34 passes for 328 yards. "Throw the block in there and that makes it that much more enjoyable."

Now it's Carson Palmer's turn to return the kindness and reach out to Trent Green. When Palmer went down in January because of a knee injury, Green was one of the first to call the Cincinnati quarterback. Although the two barely knew each other, Green offered words of encouragement, advice drawn upon his own experience with career-threatening knee problems.

Trent Green looked and felt like new. He was at his best when Kansas City needed him most. After passing for barely 50 yards in his return from a 10-week layoff, the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback threw for 50 yards in a game-winning fourth-quarter drive. Connecting on three of five passes in the final minutes, Green set up Larry Johnson's one-yard go-ahead touchdown run and rallied the Chiefs past Oakland, 17-13, Sunday.

Quarterback Trent Green said Thursday the severe concussion that left him unconscious on Sept. 10 will keep him sidelined at least until after Kansas City's game Oct. 8 against Arizona. Speaking with reporters for the first time since absorbing the head-snapping hit in the season opener, the two-time All-Pro appeared to have lost a little weight.

The NFL absolved Cincinnati defensive end James Geathers on Wednesday for his hit on Kansas City quarterback Trent Green, emphasizing quarterbacks are responsible for avoiding hits by sliding. Green sustained a serious concussion Sunday after a hit by Geathers and will sit out at least two games. "The injury ... was unfortunate and has drawn much commentary, but it is not a foul," Ray Anderson, the NFL's senior vice president, said in a statement.

The Kansas City Chiefs were breathing a sigh of relief when word came that quarterback Trent Green was OK, but that didn't make them any less angry about the hit that knocked him unconscious and sent him to the hospital Sunday. Green lay motionless during an 11-minute stoppage of the Chiefs' 23-10 loss to Cincinnati, the result of a brutal hit by Bengals defensive end Robert Geathers, but had regained consciousness and had feeling in his arms and legs Sunday night.

Sure, the Kansas City Chiefs' 24-19, streak-ending loss Sunday was surprising. And the biggest surprise was: a) It happened in Cincinnati, pro football's most trusted and reliable welcome mat since 1990. b) It happened against the Bengals. c) It took a headstrong young receiver hitting a lucky guess and turned him into Broadway Chad Johnson. d) It happened the Sunday after Veterans Day, in Week 11 of a 17-week regular season.
