Aug 31 (IBNS) A scene familiar can be equally troubling!

cassel_pats Matt Cassel, the quarterback of Chief, made another trouble for them when he bid temporary farewell to the field due to his wounds and Tyler Thigpen once again has been selected as the replacement by the Kansas City.

Matt Cassel was traded in the month of March by the Chiefs and was supposed to be the answer.

Chiefs coach Todd Haley told the media: I don’t think we’re going to be a high-powered group right now.

Cassel was helped to the locker room after the Chiefs’ third offensive play in a 14-10 loss to Seattle on Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium. Seahawks defensive tackle Brandon Mebane sacked Cassel from behind, and Cassel fell to the turf grabbing his left leg.

He got up slowly but rejoined the huddle before calling a timeout and being helped to the locker room.

He never returned to the Chiefs’ sideline, and Haley wouldn’t discuss Cassel’s condition or the team’s other injured players, cornerback Brandon Flowers and wide receiver Devard Darling. All those players left the Chiefs locker room Saturday night without speaking to reporters.

The team announced that Cassel had a leg injury and that his return was questionable.

The injuries to Flowers and Darling helped spoil the Chiefs’ preseason home finale and threw a pall of gloom over Kansas City’s hopes of dramatic improvement after two miserable seasons.
