In his place, backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham will start the final two games against playoff bound teams, the 49ers and the Chiefs.

McDaniels noted in his Wednesday press conference that the team wanted to try out Stidham for the final two games.

“None of us is happy with where we’re at, but we think it’s an opportunity to evaluate a younger player who hasn’t had much time to play,” McDaniels said. “Talking to Derek, who was great, he understands the scenario that we’re in, the situation, very supportive of the two guys.”
