Matt Cassel Injury: Chiefs QB Seems Likely To Play Vs. Bills

Last week in the preseason finale against the Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel suffered a rib injury that put his status for Sunday's Week 1 game against the Buffalo Bills in doubt. Though the Chiefs haven't confirmed, the report has Cassel with a cracked rib.

That's largely a pain tolerance issue so you have to think Cassel would play if it were his decision alone. In fact, he's already told reporters that he's going to play in Sunday's game against the Bills. Chiefs coach Todd Haley confirmed Cassel was a full participant at practice on Monday.

Those two things would suggest that Cassel's likely to play on Sunday. The Chiefs will come out with their practice reports on Wednesday and Friday and make a decision on Cassel's status on Friday. I would expect him to be listed probable.

The Chiefs are playing the Bills, who had the league's worst rush defense last year, so even a limited Cassel may not be the worst thing in the world for the Chiefs as they enter the game with last year's No. 1 rushing attack.

Stay tuned to Arrowhead Pride for more on Cassel's status heading into Sunday's game.
