KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Matt Cassel appeared to be running more briskly in practice Wednesday morning, creating hope that Kansas City's No. 1 quarterback might start on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
Cassel injured his left knee in a preseason game on Aug. 29 and sat out the season opener at Baltimore on Sunday. His left knee was still braced, but he did not appear to be limping slightly as he'd done in practice last week.
Brodie Croyle started in Cassel's place in the 38-24 loss to the Ravens and hit 16 of 24 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns.
