After winning the starting QB job in Minnesota last year in a competition with Teddy Bridgewater, Bills QB Matt Cassel’s tenure as the Vikings number one quarterback lasted all of three games. Cassel suffered a severe foot injury that required surgery and was put on injured reserve. At this point however, Cassel expects to be ready to participate fully when offseason practices begin.

In a one-on-one interview with, Cassel gave indication that his foot would be good to go.

“I believe so. The foot feels great right now,” said Cassel. “Everything has been going well with all my rehab up to this point and it was a severe foot injury at that point. I’m at about 22 weeks removed from the injury so I feel great. I’m doing exercises. I’ve been dropping back and throwing and everything else, and running so I feel good to go.”

Cassel sustained fractured bones in his foot back in Week 3 of the 2014 season. He had no ligament damage, but needed surgery to re-assemble the bones with doctors using wires to do so.
