There is no way Cassel is back before Sunday. Ben Rothlesburgher was out for one game and you can't tell me that Cassel is tougher the big ben, that dude got his nose broke during the monday night game and didn't even bat an eye that dudes tough. Adrian Peterson was out two games with that surgery so I know for a fact that Cassel wont play this week. You don't want to rush him back in there because if for some reason he did play sunday, if he gets hit in the mid section and injures himself even more than that would be the worst thing for the Chiefs who are trying to get into the playoffs

Not to mention, it would be bad for Matt and his family. I'm no doctor, but I would think it could cause life threatening damage.

not even this football game at this time of year is worth doing damage that would possibly cause problems for Matt in future weeks.
IMO

That report is misleading. Its not saying he should be able to play. Its simply saying "its up to him". From what I've read, the surgery he got has a much less recovery time than all the others and ones from the past. And I'm pretty positive he had some of the best doctors working on him compared to what any of of would have. haha

Regardless, if he's not 100%, I don't think he should play. I'd rather have him back for the last 2 games 100% then the rest of the season at 80%.

610 sports talk in Kansas City has had 2 or 3 surgeons say that they wouldn't allow Cassel to come back this week because all the blows that he could possibly take, then he said he would check out Cassel and see how he is feeling and how he is recovering before the St Louis game before he would even clear him to play. I would rather sit Cassel out this week to make sure he heals right and be back to normal next week, and through the playoffs. Instead of rushing him out there on the field this Sunday and doing more damage to himself and have him be out for the rest of the season.

chiefs are probably just trying to keep SD on their toes...so they have to prepare for more than one QB

how many times have we had players with full participation at practice and they were held out of games?

all he needs to do is be like cassel when they went 3-0. Sort, dump passes, and just protect the ball. running game and defense need to show up come Sunday

Thats what we need to do no matter whos at QB. We have to be able to run the ball just like we have all year long. That will go a long way to us getting a big victory.

A girl I know who is a personal trainer had the same procedure as Matt did. She was out of work for 3 days before returning to full strength as she said. I think we may see our starting qb behind center on sunday.

The only problem with him coming back so soon is we don't want to risk him getting a hernia during Sundays game and not beable to play in the playoffs.

there's no hernia. its SOP to examine all organs while the camera's in there. including rips and tears.

On the radio today they had a doctor come on and say that he could get a hernia from putting too much stress on his abdomen if he went out and played Sunday.

hence the reason he isn't going this week. its not a hernia defined. he can simply rip open the incision.
