The unforgiving injury imp is hungry. And it will stop at nothing to destroy your playoff dreams. Last week, the insatiable beast snacked on the hands, thumbs, feet and ribs of several notable quarterbacks. Matt Schaub and Matt Cassel were felled by season-ending injuries. Meanwhile, Michael Vick, Ben Reothlisberger and Matthew Stafford suffered painful setbacks that could directly impact their availability or overall effectiveness in the coming weeks. The fallout for marquee names such as DeSean Jackson, Dwayne Bowe and Andre Johnson could be severe. On this week's show, Craig Shemon, Brad Evans and Andy Behrens will analyze each situation and provide owners with a list of widely available crutches that could help playoff-tracking teams remain upright.
Also on this week's shocking episode, we'll give you the latest news on wounded stars Vick, Jeremy Maclin, A.J. Green, Frank Gore and Darren McFadden, exchange heated words on the Week 11 value of Ryan Mathews, explain w...

Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel has had surgery on his injured throwing hand and coach Todd Haley still hopes that he will be back this season.

Hot News for QB Michael Vick
Unbelievable the sense of gloom around KC regarding the Chiefs, who are just a game out of first place in the AFC West. But it's not misplaced, not with the Chiefs playing the way they are and Matt Cassel apparently being finished for the season (one player told me yesterday he and his teammates were told by the coaches that Cassel won't return this season).
Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel might miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on his right hand on Monday night, but coach Todd Haley isn’t ready to count him out just yet. Haley spoke to reporters Wednesday and, to the surprise of no one who has ever heard a report about an athlete’s surgery,…
Former NFL coach and current NFL Network studio analyst Jim Mora on whether Houston Texans QB Matt Leinart can get it done in replacement of injured starter Matt Schaub, and whether the high-flying Green Bay Packers can go undefeated and how the New York Jets will defend against the run-heavy attack of the Denver Broncos…
Not all storylines this week involve Patriots who became Chiefs (like QB Matt Cassel and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel). Some involve former Kansas City greats who are now Patriots. Like G Brian Waters. The veteran spent 10 years in KC, making five Pro Bowls and earning the respect of a community. Now, he’s doing so in New England. Waters talks about facing the Chiefs in my video:
When the Kansas City Chiefs come to town Monday Night, there will be a host of familiar faces that will be on hand. Scott Pioli, Romeo Crennel and Todd Haley have all worked with Belichick. Pioli worked here in New England as Belichick’s personnel man. Crennel and Haley both worked with Belichick with the New York Jets. Crennel also was Belichick’s defensive coordinator here...
