The news for new Chiefs QB Matt Cassel could be bad, as reports say that he could miss the teams season opener after injuring his knee in Saturday’s preseason game against Seattle.
Yahoo! is reporting that Cassel strained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee, an injury that could sideline him two-to-four weeks. With the season opener two weeks away, Cassel could end up missing more than just that first game.
If Cassel cannot go, Tyler Thigpen would likely assume the starting role at QB. Cassel apparently also sustained an ankle injury in the game, but it’s believed to be less serious than the MCL sprain.
