Brandon Weeden, who has been the starter during Dallas' three-game losing streak, was informed by Cowboys coaches that Cassel will start in Week 7 against the New York Giants, according to the source.
The timing makes sense as Cassel will have the extra week to prepare. And if you believe what the team is saying, it's possible WR Dez Bryant returns to help give the offense a boost as well in Week 7. If that's the case, Cassel could have some QB2 value right out of the gate. The team is just looking to stay afloat in what is a weak division that's still up for grabs.
