A day after their third preseason game, the Kansas City Chiefs are waiting for the results of “medical tests” on quarterback Matt Cassel and cornerback Brandon Flowers.
Cassel suffered a knee injury while being tackled from behind against the Seahawks. X-rays were negative; an MRI presumably has been performed.
Flowers suffered a shoulder injury.
Coach Todd Haley, who’s required to provide no injury information until the Wednesday before the regular-season opener, was tight-lipped. Haley said only that he’d discuss the situation “at a later date.”
Cassel became a star last year when Pats quarterback Tom Brady tore an ACL during the regular-season opener against the Chiefs. If Cassel’s injury is serious, the job will fall to Tyler Thigpen or Brodie Croyle.
