Why Cassel didn’t play

He was dressed for the game, but all along there were no plans to play QB Matt Cassel Thursday night. It was by design according to head coach Rex Ryan.

“G-Ro and I had talked about it before,” said Ryan of his conversation with offensive coordinator Greg Roman. “We had told (TV and radio broadcast) production that it was going to happen. I wanted to see Tyrod (Taylor) play extended time with the ones and EJ (Manuel) extended time with the twos and that’s why we made the decision we did.”

No word at this point as to how the quarterback rotation will work for Buffalo’s next preseason game against Pittsburgh.
