The Chiefs have an interesting dilemma on their hands at quarterback, with four talented players — Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray — competing at a position where teams typically keep three players.

The Chiefs do possess a sort of get-out-of-jail-free card, however, provided they put Murray — a rookie from Georgia who tore the ACL in his left knee last November — on the physically unable to perform list before the season.

Problem is, players are ineligible to be placed on that list if they participate in even one training camp practice, and Murray, who took a number of repetitions during organized team activities, made it clear Sunday he intends to participate in the Chiefs’ first practice on camp on Monday.

“Yep, I’m full go, ready to go,” Murray said.

By doing so, the Chiefs might be forced to make a decision between Bray and Daniel for the final spot at quarterback. Or they might keep all four and cut a player at another position.
