Chiefs' Matt Cassel Talks Preseason, Sore Arm, Arrowhead

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel spoke to the media for a few minutes this morning.  He talked about Arrowhead being a "historic place", running the offense efficiently and....

Having a sore arm.

No, no, it's not a big deal.  He's been taking snaps with the first team offense, which he hasn't done in camp before, so it's taking some getting used to.

Here's what he had to say about the sore arm:

"My arm is about to fall off right now," Cassel said. "It’s been one a day, two-a-day and then every drill you can think of and obviously as the starter, you get a lot more reps and a lot more throws. I’m going to have to monitor it going forward."

The quotes after the jump are coming courtesy of Bob Gretz of  When the Mothership posts video of the session, we'll update this post.

On playing in Arrowhead:

"I’m definitely a little antsy and excited about getting in front of the Arrowhead fans and to be there because Arrowhead is such a historical place."

Goals for the Houston game:

"My goal is to go out be efficient and run the offense and hopefully we have some success. My goal every time I go out there is be efficient, run the offense and do my job."

On the preseason in general:

"Any time you go into the pre-season it’s a great opportunity for the team and the offense to come together and work on things," said Cassel. "Whether it’s the running game, or the passing game, there are a lot of new concepts in our offense and I’m sure we’ll be looking at a lot of different things this weekend."

Thank you to Bob Gretz for providing the quotes so quickly.
