Matt Cassel, Tony Moeaki leave with injuries


For starting players, the fourth preseason week is one to play quickly and hope to avoid injury.

Two key Chiefs players did not survive Thursday night’s game 100%, although it’s unclear if either injury is serious.  Quarterback Matt Cassel and tight end Tony Moeaki both left with injuries, according to Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star.

Cassel appeared to hurt his shoulder after getting tackled.  The Chiefs did not disclose the injury. He was seen on the sideline with his helmet on after the hit ready to go back in, so it doesn’t appear the injury was too worrisome.

Moeaki, who has struggled to stay healthy all camp, left with a knee injury.

The Chiefs lost the game 20-19 to the Packers.
