Chiefs/Cassel/Practice Update – 10/10

From the Truman Sports Complex

Quarterback Matt Cassel has not yet been cleared by doctors to take part in practice or any physical activity with the Chiefs according to head coach Romeo Crennel.

Cassel was briefly in the building on Wednesday, but did not take part in any meetings or activity with his teammates because of the concussion he suffered on Sunday against Baltimore.

“He’s been getting a series of tests as it relates to a concussion and he’s been seeing the doctors,” Crennel said. “Matt I think he’s getting better, but the league is very serious and cautious about concussions and about how they are handled; we have to follow the procedures on that as we go forward.”

Crennel did not declare Cassel out for Sunday’s game in Tampa, but he made it plain that Brady Quinn needed to get ready to play against the Buccaneers.

Cassel was one of four players listed by the Chiefs as not practicing on Wednesday. The others were — RB Peyton Hillis (ankle), DE Glenn Dorsey (calf) and WR Devon Wylie (hamstring).

Limited in their practice participation were – RB Shaun Draughn (ankle), C Ryan Lilja (back) and WR Jon Baldwin (hamstring). Listed as full participation were FS Kendrick Lewis (shoulder), CB Jalil Brown (hamstring) and DE Ropati Pitoitua (elbow).

From Tampa, the Buccaneers had three players on their practice report. Only CB Eric Wright was limited with an illness. Participating fully were G Carl Nicks (toe) and OT Jeremy Trueblood (illness).

    Agree ED J. Just look at the Houston Texans. They lost Brian Cushing for the season. That’s like the Chiefs losing Derrick Johnson or Tamba Hali.

    Go CHIEFS!

    At what point do we just IR Wylie? What a waste of roster space.

    Yeah i’m feeling that way too Petey but guess their trying see if Breaston going get fully healthy before making that decision but my thing is if he’s not back after the bye week might as well put him on IR.

    Its funny because Peterson admitted Quinn would’ve been chosen if he had fell to Chiefs in 2007 so strange how things work out because he’ll start Sunday with the Chiefs going to be interesting how he does in Red and Gold on Sunday.
