The Rap Sheet:
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.
Patriot’s coach Bill Belichick is just trying to dig up something to watch to prepare.
”He’s a player we have to do some work on and spend more time watching him. We of course haven’t seen a lot of him in regular season game film,” Belichick said earlier today during a conference call with the media. ”We can go back to preseason. I’d say he’s an athletic player, quick release, can move around back there in the pocket, left-handed, and sees the field pretty well. I think they have a lot of confidence in him. He played ahead of [Ricky] Stanzi this year in preseason and I know Stanzi is a guy they drafted.” (more…)

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley announced today that starting quarterback Matt Cassel suffered a "significant hand injury" on Sunday in the loss to the Broncos and that he might be out for the season. Cassel was under duress most of the day against the Broncos as he was sacked 4 times and hit 12 other times in the game. He did not return to the game after that...
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel was forced to leave Sunday's loss to Denver with shoulder and hand injuries.
Cassel injured his left shoulder and was replaced in the waning minutes by Tyler Palko.
He was also seen leaving the stadium with a cast on his right hand that had his index and middle fingers immobilized.
Cassel threw for only 93 yards and a touchdown on...
Matt Cassel was supposed to make his return to New England this week
When the season schedule was released, two thoughts went through my mind
1. I hope we have an NFL season (remember, it was still the lockout)
2. What games are most intriguing?
There is a difference between “good” and “intriguing”. Good games are games such as the Jets games or the Eagles game, games that...
Matt Cassel stood on the sideline helplessly, watching backup quarterback Tyler Palko run the Chiefs' two-minute offense. He'd been bruised and battered by the Denver Broncos, so much so that the Kansas City training staff wouldn't let him play.
What's ahead for the Kansas City Chiefs now that Matt Cassel might be done for the year? And what about his head coach?
The hope that KC could turn around their season has taken a major hit, after it was announced that their QB has a hand injury that could keep him sidelined for the rest of the year.

Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel underwent surgery to his right hand late Monday, and coach Todd Haley said Wednesday that the procedure went "really well" and held out hope that Cassel might return this season. Cassel suffered an injury to his throwing hand late in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Denver Broncos.
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,…
It's hard to pick out just five things the Chiefs have to worry about after watching them get manhandled by Denver.
On top of the obvious worries KC is now 4-5 and headed backwards in the weak AFC West the Chiefs face some seriously rough water to navigate going forward.
They're heading into that five-game stretch against talented playoff contenders the rugged gauntlet...
