Although Matt Cassel (concussion) has yet to be ruled out for Week 6, coach Romeo Crennel says it’s “highly unlikely” he plays against the Bucs. With the Chiefs on bye in Week 7, it appears they prefer to give Cassel two weeks of rest instead of rushing him back.
Of course, the fact that Cassel’s play was screaming for a benching before his injury is surely a factor. As it is, Brady Quinn is almost certain to be under center in Tampa.
Even though Cassel has been horrendous, it’s doubtful Quinn ’ who has a career 67.3 QB rating, 52.5 completion percentage and 5.4 YPA through 356 pass attempts ’ will be any better.
