The Chicago Fire released its MLS schedule Wednesday, and if we were you, we'd be circling the following dates: March 3 at Los Angeles: Nothing like starting the season against the two-time defending champs on their field.

Orton checked into the game to start the second quarter after Kansas City Chiefs starting quarterback Tyler Palko was pulled. On Orton's first play, the Chiefs got tricky, trying a flea flicker. But when Orton unloaded a pass intended for Jon Baldwin, his hand hit Bear Major Wright on his follow through. Orton went down immediately, clutched his right index finger, then stood up and motioned to the Chiefs sideline while holding his hand awkwardly.
