Despite Concussion, Cassel Not Ruled Out Of Play...Yet

Larry W. Smith

Kansas City Chiefs head football coach Romeo Crennel confirmed today that quarterback Matt Cassel has a concussion as the result of play in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens.  Crennel says he is awaiting the results of further testing and isn't ruling out the possibility that Cassel will play this Sunday at Tampa Bay.

"You know with emphasis on concussions in the league they're making sure that we do due diligence on the player's health, and making sure that he's not rushed back," says Crennel. "So we'll evaluate it and see."

Brady Quinn filled in for the rest of the game on Sunday after Cassel left in the fourth quarter.
