It is sounding more and more like QB Matt Cassel will be a wild card for his status Sunday when the Chiefs play at St.Louis against the Rams. Coach Todd Haley said it is a “day-to-day” situation with Cassel and they won’t have a definitive answer until later in the week.
As far as starting the practice week, Cassel is officially “limited” in practice. Cassel, who is just over two weeks removed from surgery, said that he is going to do whatever he can to get on the field. And he better after watching the Chiefs get pounded in San Diego Sunday 31-0.
“I think, medically, there’s a number of different issues that come up with a procedure like this but in terms of how I feel, if i can go there and do everything I want to do without any discomfort or without any pain, I’m going to go out there and play,” Cassel said.
Friday will be the key day for Cassel, as if he can get out there and throw the ball around and be somewhat close to 100 percent, it would be hard to see him not playing Sunday after last weeks showing by the Chiefs offense.
