ST. LOUIS -- Quarterback Matt Cassel is active for the Kansas City Chiefs, only 11 days after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

The Chiefs did not say whether Cassel would start Sunday against the St. Louis Rams in a game between surprise playoff contenders. Third-string quarterback Tyler Palko was inactive.

Kansas City managed only 67 yards with backup Brodie Croyle as the starter last week in a 31-0 loss at San Diego. Cassel had been listed as questionable.

Cornerback Justin King and rookie wide receiver Mardy Gilyard were among the Rams' inactives. King was out the second straight week with a shoulder injury and Gilyard, a fourth-round pick, was inactive for the second time in three weeks.

I hope he starts, but Adam Schefter makes it sound like he won't.

He plays with some serious heart. He's our leading rusher right now and has the offense finally moving. Unquestioned leader of this team and we should all be thankful

This guy was ready to go on Tuesday. The Chiefs did a great job of not having him over extend his body at practice all week while still practicing with the first team.

I knew he was starting, told you guys he was starting and have been laughing at media reports all week.

The combination of what the Chiefs looked like without Matt Cassel and then this week, with Matt Cassel, should automatically throw him into the MVP conversation.

I've never been more of a Cassel fan then I am right now; he and Chiefs have exceeded my expectations this season.

I had similar thoughts today. His name is never even mentioned. Very few QB's have stat lines as good as Cassel's. If the Chiefs win the AFC West, Cassel's name has to be in the discussion.

I've heard Haley's name mentioned several times for coach of the year.

Well, one things for sure, even with the interception he turned in an MVP performance today!
