Chiefs Injury Report: QB Matt Cassel, CB Brandon Flowers

Two key Kansas City Chiefs appeared on the weekly injury report today (via Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com)

Last week, the Chiefs had Jackie Battle (illness) and Terrance Copper (Hamstring) listed as well.

Cassel's still the great unknown.  Coach Todd Haley said he's done everything he can to be ready and he expects to know a little earlier this time.  Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star was on 810 WHB this morning and said his gut feeling is that he'll play.

"I think he's going to be out there," Babb said.  "I don't think they're not going to rush him back. If he's not healthy, that's one thing.  But they need him, and he wants to play, and he's probably close enough to make it happen so he'll play."

(By the way, Babb predicts a Chiefs victory)

Flowers injury is interesting.  Last week, he talked before the game as if he was going to play.  This sounds like it was the coach's decision and not his (which is way it usually goes).

This report isn't so bad.  Look at the big picture - the Chiefs only have two players listed on the injury report through one week.

The Raiders are down to four receivers, one of whom is Javon Walker.

The Raiders full injury report is here:

  • WR Nick Miller (shin) -Out
  • WR Chaz Schilens (foot) - Out
  • WR Johnnie Lee Higgns (shoulder) - Did not practice
  • CB Nnamdi Asomugha (wrist) - Full practice
  • LB Kirk Morrison (elbow) - Full practice
