Cassel played the first series in the preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders before giving way to rookie Teddy Bridgewater who got about two quarters of action.
Cassel went 5-6 for 62 yards and Bridgewater completed 6 of his 13 attempts for 49 yards against Oakland.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said he would decide later if Bridgewater gets a start in either one of the team’s final two preseason contests. The third preseason game is generally one where the first-team starters play the majority of the game.
“We’ll see after this week,” Zimmer said. “I don’t know.”
