Chiefs’ Cassel ‘leaps and bounds’ ahead of last week

Chiefs QB Matt Cassel hasn’t been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Raiders, but he hasn’t been ruled as “in” either.

Cassel was limited in practice Thursday for the second consecutive day, but there’s still no indication from Chiefs coach Todd Haley on the quarterback’s status.

Cassel again moved around in practice with a brace on his left knee, but Haley wasn’t in a rush to quantify the QB’s status until seeing more in practice Friday.

“Again, I would say that Matt was very similar to yesterday,” Haley told reporters. “Not full participation, but he’s moving around better than he did last week, so I would say that’s a positive for us. But again, I think we’ve got make sure we get it right, and we’ll make it an evaluation that includes tomorrow.”

Cassel was ruled out of the Chiefs’ Week 1 game just before kickoff, but Haley would like to have the issue settled sooner this time — possibly by tomorrow.

“I feel like I’m leaps and bounds ahead of where I was last week at this time,” Cassel said. “Any time you have an injury, you’re just trying to work hard, you’re trying to do whatever it is they have you doing in terms of treatment and everything. I feel like we’ve made a lot of progress.”
