The Chiefs aren’t kidding with this Matt Cassel thing—following last week’s emergency appendectomy the team has remained completely mum about his status for Week 15’s game against the St. Louis Rams, even after beat writers have made constant updates on his comings and goings in practice. He remains a game-time decision, the Star reported Friday night.
The Chiefs will apparently defer to doctors on the scene on Sunday, leaving Brodie Croyle to hope that appendicitis is, like anything else in the NFL, just something the team’s trainers trump up to confuse next week’s opponent.
Cassel missed the Chiefs’ Week 14 loss to the San Diego Chargers, but contrary to early rumors he did not take Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones with him. The status of their appendixes is unclear at this point in time, but rest assured that we and our comrades at SB Nation Kansas City will have the latest updates on all Missouri-related pro athletes’ vestigial organs.
