(Kansas City, MO) — Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel says quarterback Matt Cassel will likely miss Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay. Cassel suffered a concussion in Sunday’s 9-6 home loss to the Ravens after taking a vicious hit from Baltimore’s Haloti Ngata in the fourth quarter. Crennel says Brady Quinn will get the reps in practice this week and will likely start against the Bucs.
