Last season's second half fantasy savior Tyler Thigpen will probably take the starting job until Cassel returns. Were I Cassel, I might nurse that knee until week 7. The schedule will get much more QB friendly after week 6.
I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Josh Looney, of KCChiefs.com, reports Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel (knee) was in full pads and practicing with the team Monday, Sept. 7. He wore a brace on his left knee and did all individual drills that the quarterbacks participated in.
^Good news here, looks like he may be back a little earlier than expected.
Ouch, your team looks like it got nailed by the injury bug, bad luck buddy. He'll play this week barring any setbacks but OAKs secondary looked really good last night. If Cassel has to go against a chronically collapsing pocket and a stiff secondary like Rivers did, I wouldn't expect big numbers.
