Andy Updates Chiefs Injuries

The Chiefs injury report for Monday was lengthy, but in the view of head coach Andy Reid, there’s a chance most of the seven players he named would be able to practice on Wednesday.

“If we would have practiced today, we would have most of them back and ready to go,” Reid said.

Here’s a look at those hobbled at the start of the week:

- RT Eric Fisher re-injured the shoulder that bothered him earlier this season and missed most of the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game. “He’s actually doing a little bit better today,” Reid said of Fisher.

– LT Branden Albert did not play against Oakland missing his second game because of the hyperextended left knee that he suffered on December 1st. Reid said Albert was “doing better.”

– TE Anthony Fasano did not play against Oakland on Sunday, missing his second game because of the concussion he suffered on December 1st. Fasano was cleared for light practice last week.

– WR Dexter McCluster did not play Sunday because of an infection in the area of his right ankle/foot. McCluster suffered a cut in the Washington game and the wound became infected. “He’s making progress,” Reid said of McCluster. “We’ll see how he does here in the next couple of days as we get closer to Wednesday’s practice, but he is moving around better.”

– OLB Justin Houston missed his third game because of the dislocated right elbow that he suffered on November 24th. Houston returned to practice last week and Reid said that he too was “doing better.”

– CB Brandon Flowers left Sunday’s game against Oakland in the first half with a groin injury. But Flowers returned in the second half and was back on the field in the Chiefs defense without a major problem.

– ILB James-Michael Johnson suffered a slight AC joint sprain in Sunday’s game. “He’s doing OK, a little bit sore, but OK,” Reid said of Johnson.

– TE Demetrius Harris on the practice squad suffered a sprained ankle I n practice last week. Reid said it was a high ankle sprain.
