KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)

Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel, who sat out last week's game at Tampa Bay with a concussion, has been cleared for non-contact practice and could play in the Chiefs' next game on Oct. 28 against Oakland.

PAIN TRAIN

Injuries are a part of football, but these players have been hit particularly hard.

If Cassel does get the start, it could trigger a quarterback controversy. Never very popular with fans, Cassel's stock has hit rock-bottom in Kansas City after he threw nine interceptions and had a hand in many of the team's NFL-leading 19 turnovers the first five games.

His replacement, Brady Quinn, had two interceptions against the Buccaneers in his first start in almost three years as the Chiefs lost 38-10 and dropped to 1-5 going into this bye week.

Cassel was on the practice field with the other quarterbacks Tuesday going through non-contact drills.
