The official word after Sunday’s loss by the Chiefs to the Ravens was that quarterback Matt Cassel is being evaluated for a head injury.

The evaluation has been completed. Per a league source, Cassel has a concussion.

And so Cassel’s status will depend on evaluations and opinions from an independent neurologist, who must clear Cassel to practice and play. Until he’s cleared, he can do neither.
