The Chiefs announced this afternoon that QB Matt Cassel underwent a successful appendectomy today, throwing his status for Sunday’s game vs. the Chargers in doubt.

The team said Cassel will return to work this week, but you’d have to think it won’t be easy to return so quickly from a procedure of that nature.

For the record, Cassel’s backup is Brodie Croyle – who hasn’t thrown a pass all season and who hasn’t started a game since the 2009 season opener.

According to Rapid Reporter Bob Gretz, Croyle took all the first-team snaps at practice today.

“I got some reps; I've got to be ready to go at any time,” said Croyle, via Gretz. “I'm going to prepare like I always do and if my number is called I have to be ready. It's no different than any other week … You have to prepare for that moment, you never know when it is coming. Getting reps, getting no reps, as the backup you have to be ready to go in both situations."

UPDATED (5:13 p.m.): Just talked to a physician family member (Yay for free medical advice!), and I asked her if it was possible Cassel could play Sunday, even if the surgery was laparascopic (minimally-invasive), as ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported. "This Sunday?" she said. "No, I don't think so. Maybe next Sunday."
