Returning from appendectomy, Cassel active for K.C. wire reports

ST. LOUIS -- Quarterback Matt Cassel is active for the Kansas City Chiefs, only 11 days after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

The Chiefs did not say whether Cassel would start Sunday against the St. Louis Rams in a game between surprise playoff contenders. Third-string quarterback Tyler Palko was inactive.

Kansas City managed only 67 yards with backup Brodie Croyle as the starter last week in a 31-0 loss at San Diego. Cassel had been listed as questionable.

Cornerback Justin King and rookie wide receiver Mardy Gilyard were among the Rams' inactives. King was out the second straight week with a shoulder injury and Gilyard, a fourth-round pick, was inactive for the second time in three weeks.
