12:35 PM ET 10.10 | Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel has not been cleared to play. He suffered a concussion in a Week 5 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, and missed practice on Wednesday as the team prepares for a Week 6 game in Tampa Bay. Cassel has to pass the NFL's battery of concussion tests before he can be cleared to play. He will most likely sit this week. Brady Quinn would get the start in his place.

Makes sense to me.

But does anything make sense to Cassel yet?

Best wishes for a complete recovery.

Whomever the QB is for the Chief's on Sunday will be thankful that it's a road game.

Let Quinn get beat up a bit, then come back for your 4 12 season

Yep plenty of lumps to go around this year for Chief's QBs. Might also be sort-of good PR; let the fans see it isn't all Cassel's fault, the offense stinks with whoever is QB

I hope he comes back since I have the Bucs defense in fantasy, everyone puts up big points on my team considering the fact they lead the NFL in turnovers.

If he's not cleared he doesn't play, thought Quinn was out with concussion!!!

Quinn has played that way his whole career, when he's played at all.
