Chiefs Update – 11/26

From the Truman Sports Complex

The Chiefs will get more information on Tuesday concerning the injury status of WR Dexter McCluster and FS Kendrick Lewis. Both went down in Sunday’s loss to Denver, McCluster with a head injury and Lewis with a shoulder.

Head coach Romeo Crennel said McCluster was “going through some evaluations today and they’ll tell us later on.” The Chiefs have used head injury to mean concussion, so McCluster will have to go through the league’s protocols before he’s approved for action.

Lewis injured his left shoulder and initial x-rays showed no serious problems. He had an MRI on Monday afternoon and that will provide more detailed information on whether the shoulder is damaged.

“They didn’t seem overly concerned at the time about it,” Crennel said of the reaction of team medical personnel when Lewis was first examined. “They feel like he should be able to come back.”

Crennel did not have an update on the status of LT Branden Albert, who missed Sunday’s game because of back spasms. “He’s still working his back and we’ll find out what he can do this week,” Crennel said.

Those were the only major injuries of note from the 17-9 loss to Denver.
