Will Matt Cassel Play Against St. Louis Rams?

The Kansas City Chiefs will determine in the next few hours if QB Matt Cassel will be available to play against the St. Louis Rams. The Chiefs have Cassel listed as questionable after undergoing an appendectomy last week. He didn't play last weekend and has been a limited participant in practice everyday this week.

Chiefs head coach Todd Haley has said that he is "truly" day-to-day and Cassel himself has said he wants to play but part of this is a medical and coaching staff decision.

So will he play?

You can be fairly certain he will. While the Chiefs have been saying he's questionable, the only that really matters is reps. While most with the Chiefs are mum on who exactly is getting the most reps, the indications are is that Cassel's getting the majority of first team reps.

Last week Cassel hinted that he wanted to play but it was a coaching/medical staff decision. With another week to recover. I imagine he'll be ready for this game. For you fantasy footballers, prepare as if he'll play.
