Right now, it’s more how I feel and how the week progresses,” Cassel said. “It’s also how the coaches evaluate me throughout the week and whether I can make the throws and play to the best of my ability.
“If I can go out there and I can do everything I want to do without any discomfort, without any pain, then I’m going to go out and play. Medically, there are a number of different issues that come up with a procedure like this in terms of just how I feel. The medical staff, the trainers, the coaches will discuss it. We’ll proceed with caution.”
