Matt Cassel (rib) reiterated in a conference call with the Buffalo media Wednesday that he'll start Week 1 against the Bills.
Cassel said his cracked rib feels "great," and he's "ready to roll" in the opener. Coach Todd Haley, rarely forthcoming on injury situations, told Bills reporters that Cassel will both practice Wednesday and play in the game on Sunday. Consider Cassel a low-end QB2 with K.C. likely to pound Buffalo with the run.
