Things didn’t go as planned when Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Todd Haley played his starters into the 4th quarter of the final preseason game.
Haley hasn’t been available to answer questions about Cassel’s status since immediately after the Green Bay game. At that time, he said, “He wanted to go back in. I thought the prudent thing was to be smart there.
“Unfortuntately, he got dinged up a little bit. I’m not overly concerned.”
The Chiefs lost tight end Tony Moeaki for the season because of a left knee injury in the loss to the Packers. Moeaki was also injured in the second quarter.
Normally, starters are removed from a team’s fourth and final preseason game by the end of the first quarter to protect them from injury. As a comparison, the Packers pulled their starters after each team had one possession Friday night.
