Cassel Says He’s Ready

From the Truman Sports Complex

QB Matt Cassel said Wednesday after his second practice of the week with his broken rib that he’s ready and able to play on Sunday in the season opener against Buffalo.

“No doubt in my mind,” Cassel said of his playing status. “I feel good. I feel like I’m ready to go. It feels good that the season is finally here.”

Cassel said he did everything in practice that he normally does, and teammates confirmed that he was participating and everything appeared normal.

“He’s out there moving around like he always does,” RB Dexter McCluster said. “If he’s hurting it doesn’t show.”

On the Chiefs injury/practice report on Wednesday, Cassel was listed as a full participant in practice.

The only other player listed was WR Jonathan Baldwin, down as a did not practice with this thumb injury.

    I’m happy Cassel is feeling well. With Moeaki out, the Chiefs really could use BAldwin. I hope the idiot rookie learned something from his lockerroom encounter!

    Looking at the schedule, this Bills game is one the Chiefs should win. Not too many easy ones this year.

    txchief, I agree but all I ever heard about him was calling out his coaches and teammates in collegeg. I don’t recall he doing a thing in training camp, except the obvious.

    I suspect he is due for a long period of Haley’s dog house when healthy, I believe he needs a major attitude adjustment maybe until late, very late into this season. Also is he a speed guy, if you know appreciate the info? I think I heard he was big and had hands, not so much speedy?

    I’m just sick of all the hyperbole and jaw-flapping that has happened this off season. I want to see the Chiefs stuff the Bills under the turf at Arrowhead and quiet all of those Chiefs “experts” out there. This season is time for Haley to show what he has as a coach. There is no Charlie Weis safety net now!

    With Cassels ribs still being somewhat sore I bet Buffalo is planning on a big dose of the run. The box will be stacked and it could be a real tough day for our offense. The Chiefs game plan will be “oh so predictable”. Charles, Jones, McClain and then lets do it again.

    If the Chiefs can execute the run, let them run and let the Bills try to stop it.

    My concern is no TE safety valve. Pope and OConnel will not do, except for blocking.

    Want to keep Cassel healthy and Palko off the field, run like a rabbit. Pass, to who?, and chance losing your only NFL grade QB. If the Bills can shut down Bowe (probably double him), who is Cassel going to look for? Breaston or Urban or McCluster, anyone going down field?
