Chiefs' Haley Says QB Cassel Will Start

A rib injury has put the status of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel in question. But it's nothing to worry about according to the team's head coach.

During Wednesday's conference call, Todd Haley told reporters that Cassel would practice and will start for their season opener at home against the Buffalo Bills.

Cassel was very effective for the Chiefs last season, amassing 3,116 yards, 27 touchdowns to only seven interceptions. Cassel and the Chiefs barely squeaked out a 13-10 win over Buffalo last season thanks to 274 yards on the ground. Cassel had only 152 yards passing and a touchdown in the victory.

In his conference call with the Buffalo media, Cassel said the ribs feel great and that he's ready to roll on Sunday against the Bills.

Not practicing for the Bills Wednesday was ILB Arthur Moats. OLB/DE Alex Carrington was back to work.

NT Torell Troup left practice early. He appeared to be favoring his left leg. He did not return and is listed as limited with a lower back injury.
