Cassel Will Start Against The Steelers

From the Truman Sports Complex

Romeo Crennel said Wednesday morning that QB Brady Quinn has not been cleared by doctors to play this week and that Matt Cassel will open the Monday night game in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.

Quinn suffered a concussion on October 28th in the first half of the game against Oakland. He missed last week’s game in San Diego with Cassel returning to the starting lineup after Crennel benched him following the bye week.

“He has not been cleared for contact and has been advised not to play Monday night,” Crennel said of Quinn. “We talked about his situation and what the doctor had advised and we are going to error on the side of caution and protect the football player.”

Also ruled out of Monday night’s game is DE Glenn Dorsey with his calf injury. Crennel said the only other player on the injury report this week is TE Steve Maneri with his sore ankle; he’ll be limited in Wednesday’s practice.

Everyone else on the roster will be full participants in practice.
