Per FOX Sports' Jay Glazer on TV a few minutes ago, injured Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel is out for the rest of the 2011 season. Cassel had surgery on a broken hand last week, which he sustained against the Denver Broncos in Week 10.
This is really no surprise. From the day Cassel was injured, there was speculation about the hand injury ending his season. In fact, there were reports that the rest of the Chiefs' roster was told earlier this week that Cassel was out for the season.
The Chiefs have not officially announced this and Matt Cassel has not been placed on injured reserve, yet.
The Tyler Palko era begins tomorrow night against the New England Patriots.
