It may be a good thing the Kansas City Chiefs have a little bit of a cushion now, huh?
Heading into a key AFC West matchup against the San Diego Chargers, Sports Radio 810 WHB reported Wednesday that Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel underwent an emergency appendectomy. His status for Sunday’s game is unknown, but it doesn’t look good.
Chances are, he’ll miss at least this week and possibly the next game on the road against St. Louis the next week – though the Chiefs have said it’s “50/50″ that he will play Sunday. I’m not holding my breath.
So we go from people begging for Brodie Croyle to start ahead of Cassel earlier this year to people now worried with Cassel possibly out. What do you think? Are you worried? With this cushion, does it matter?
