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.
Cassel hurt his right hand in Sunday's 17-10 loss to Denver. The former Pro Bowl quarterback had surgery Monday evening to repair what Haley called a ''significant'' injury.
Haley said Wednesday he doesn't know when Cassel will be able to return. The team has not placed him on injured reserve, which means he could return this season. Haley said much of that will depend on how Cassel recovers this week.
The Chiefs play Monday night at New England, giving backup Tyler Palko a little more time to prepare. Rookie Ricky Stanzi will be the backup.

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.

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).
With old friend Matt Cassel out with a hand injury, it looks like the Kansas City Chiefs will be starting backup Tyler Palko on Monday night.
Who’s Tylor Palko.
Well, two years ago, he was with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadiean Football League. So there you go.

Chiefs coach Todd Haley is incredibly superstitious. He has the second largest rabbit foot collection in the NFL (behind Rex Ryan duh). He also scored the lowest in “Plays well with others” in each of his four years in kindergarten.
What to eat?
Ol’ friend Miz is preparing Korean BBQ beef this week, or Bulgogi.
