Two days after an emergency appendectomy, Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel was mostly a spectator at practice on Friday.
The accompany this post taken by Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star shows Cassel’s minimal level of involvement. (Cassel is in the white shirt.) Cassel may throw some light passes, but Brodie Croyle is being prepared to start Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.
All indications at this point are that Croyle will get the call Sunday and Cassel will do his best to return for Week 15 against the Rams. It’s possible nothing official will be announced until gametime. The Chiefs can essentially end San Diego’s season with a win.
UPDATE: Cassel is officially doubtful on the injury report.
