Report: Matt Cassel Has Rib Injury And Could Miss Week One


So I wish I had better news for you this evening, but the KC Star is reporting that Chiefs QB Matt Cassel has some kind of rib injury that could put his playing status in week one in doubt. Adam Teicher says that coach Todd Haley has even told Tyler Palko “You’d better be ready to play Sunday.” Now nothing is certain at this point so its not time to panic just yet, but this definitely doesn’t make Chiefs fans that were already upset about an 0-4 preseason and losing TE Tony Moeaki for the season feel any better. On the bright side, last season Cassel showed his ability to bounce back quickly after having his appendix out so I wouldn’t count him out just yet.

Update: It appears that 610’s Nick Wright actually broke the story but the Star is also now reporting the same thing.
