Matt Cassel has 'several fractured bones' in foot - [Full Article]

Vikings QB Matt Cassel was ruled out early in the second quarter of Sunday's 20-9 loss to the New Orleans Saints after suffering a toe injury.

Cassel was quickly carted to the locker room for tests. After the game, head coach Mike Zimmer said that Cassel had "several fractured bones" in his foot.

Fantasy Impact: 

Zimmer confirmed that rookie Teddy Bridgewater will start for the foreseeable future. Bridgewater did well in his debut and didn't turn the ball over. He'll bring a new, much-needed element to the Vikings offense to hopefully pair up for WR Cordarrelle Patterson. He could have some value in certain matchups either as a QB2 or in a committee.
