Sounds Like Chiefs QB Matt Cassel Likely To Play Vs. Bills

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the Kansas City Chiefs will release practice reports updating us on the health of any injured players, per league policy. They'll have to announce whether an injured player practiced and whether he was a full or limited participant or whether he didn't practice at all.

The Chiefs aren't required to do that until Wednesday but Todd Haley, who's normally mum on injuries, said that QB Matt Cassel, who suffered a rib injury last week, was a full participant in practice on Monday.

"He was out there practicing," Haley said of Cassel, via KCChiefs.com. "I thought he did a good job.

For Cassel's part, he expects to play Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. He told reporters as much on Monday.

Though it appears Cassel is looking likely to play, there are two things we need to watch out for. First, we need to see him practice this week and throw the ball. Teams can say what they want but what really matters in the NFL is what you do so we need to see Cassel do it on the practice field. Second, we need to see how the Chiefs list him on Friday's injury report -- probable or questionable, if he's listed at all.

That's when we'll get the first real update on Cassel but it's looking good for Sunday's game.
