Matt Cassel leaves game Sunday with head injury: Fantasy implications

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Matt Cassel left Sunday's game between the Chiefs and the Ravens in the fourth quarter with a head injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Cassel left Sunday's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth quarter with a head injury. Cassel got hit hard by Haloti Ngata and Pernell McPhee after a throw, and stayed on the ground for a minute before getting up and walking to the locker room.

Fantasy Impact: Cassel struggled before leaving the game, finishing just 9-for-15 for 92 yards and two interceptions on the day. He also lost a two fumbles, one of which came on the goal-line. Cassel now leads the league with 13 total turnovers on the season, and is in danger of losing his job to Brady Quinn even if he is able to bounce back healthy. Suffice it to say, Cassel should be on waivers in your fantasy league.
