Cassel completed 19 of 30 passes for 186 yards and an interception in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay. He fumbled the ball during the contest. Cassel failed to put together a successful repeat performance coming off of last week's three-touchdown game. Last week's performance aside, Cassel has thrown for just one touchdown to pair with five picks in his other three starts for Dallas. Inserted into the lineup, in part, to add a vertical element to Dallas' passing game, Cassel has averaged just 6.7 yards per attempt in his four starts. Cowboys fans, and fantasy owners of Cassel's teammates, have likely begun a countdown for Tony Romo's Thanksgiving-Day return.
Cassel completed 25 of 38 passes for 299 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 33-27 overtime loss to the Eagles. Cassel was more aggressive than in his previous two starts, though he did still throw a lot of short passes, with 11 of those going in Cole Beasley's direction. Cassel threw an ugly pick-six to give the Eagles a 21-14 lead in the fourth quarter, but he was bailed out when Dez Bryant made an 18-yard touchdown catch in traffic on the next drive. With Tony Romo (collarbone) not eligible to return until Week 11, Cassel will get at least one more start, facing the Bucs in Tampa Bay.
Cassel (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports. Cassel was a full practice participant throughout the week and was listed as probable for Sunday's game. After a pair of poor outings against the Giants and Seahawks, he'll face a tough Philadelphia defense in his third start of the season.
Cassel (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Cassel logged full practices throughout the week, suggesting that his knee isn't much of a concern. The real issue is that he's been playing poorly and will now have to face a tough Philadelphia defense on Sunday.
Cassel was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practiced with a knee injury, Brandon George of Dallas Morning News reports. Cassel incurred the injury during a roughing-the-passer penalty on the Cowboys' final drive Sunday versus the Seahawks. While he said that he's "fine," according to Rob Phillips of team's official site, Cassel wore a knee brace as a precaution during drills. Meanwhile, Tony Romo (collarbone) returned to individual drills Wednesday, signaling that Cassel likely has just two games remaining as Dallas' starting quarterback. After he was contained to 97 passing yards in Week 8, he'll have his hands full again Sunday against an Eagles defense that held Eli Manning and Cam Newton to less than 200 yards in their last two contests.
