Yahoo Sports Report: Cassel Out For Season Opener


According to Yahoo Sports’ Jason Cole, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel is going to miss the season opener at Baltimore on September 13 due to a strained MCL. He is slated to miss 2-4 weeks.

The Chiefs next two quarterbacks on the depth chart are Tyler Thigpen and Brodie Croyle, who have a combined 19 career NFL starts. Thigpen would get the starting nod over Croyle if indeed Cassel cannot play. Cassel started 15 games for the Patriots last year in place of the injured Tom Brady and did an excellent job, leading the Pats to an 11-5 record.

This is not the way the Chiefs wanted to begin the Matt Cassel era. They signed him to a six-year, $63 million contract in July. The deal included $28 million in guaranteed money.

I can already hear the Ravens’ defense licking their chops. You saw how much they enjoyed getting after young Mark Sanchez. Just wait til they get a chance to feast on another relatively inexperienced QB.
