[NFL.com] Chiefs quarterback Tyler Palko finished off Sunday’s loss to the Denver Broncos after Matt Cassel went down with an apparent hand injury. Cassel spoke to reporters after the game and said the coaching staff determined he was “too banged up” to finish the game.
There wasn’t anything visibly wrong with Cassel in the postgame media session but Kent Babb of the KC Star spotted him later and tweeted that Cassel was “wearing a cast on his right hand. Had index and middle fingers immobilized.”
