Matt Cassel wasn’t able to finish Kansas City’s humilating home loss to the Broncos.
Todd Haley confirmed after the game that Tyler Palko didn’t play late in the fourth quarter because Cassel was unable to continue.
“He was beat up there at the end; he was unable to go physically. We’ll have to see as the week goes on, but it was physical in nature,” coach Todd Haley.
Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star wrote that Cassel had his index and middle fingers immobilized. Tyler Palko replaced Cassel late in the game.
The Chiefs are now 4-5 and fading fast in the AFC West. They head to Foxborough next Monday night.
