Chiefs | Matt Cassel ruled out for Week 6

Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel (concussion) has been ruled out for the team's Week 6 game.

Fantasy Tip: Chiefs fans are finally getting their wish, although it was injury, and not poor play, that forced the quarterback out of the starting lineup. Cassel has already thrown nine picks with only five touchdowns in the first five games. He attempted just 15 passes in a Week 5 loss as the Chiefs were looking to play it safe with the run game, rather than have the football in his hands. Brady Quinn, who has been taking first-team reps in practice, will start in Week 6; however, he should not be considered a fantasy option. He will likely serve as no more than a game manager, particularly behind a strong running game.
