Injury Update – Albert is Day-to-Day

From the Truman Sports Complex

Left tackle Branden Albert left the field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday night with a hyper-extended left knee. So concerned were doctors with the injury that Albert was taken from the field on a cart.

But x-rays on Sunday and an MRI on Monday showed no major damage to Albert’s joint and according to head coach Andy Reid, he is a “day-to-day situation; we’ll see how he does as we move forward here.”

TE Anthony Fasano came out of the game with a concussion and he’s is going through the NFL’s concussion protocol starting on Monday. “He’s doing well in that area,” said Reid, who added that Fasano also has “a bit of a knee strain.”

OLB Justin Houston missed Sunday’s game due to the dislocated right elbow that he suffered in the San Diego game. Reid said Houston “is making progress there as most of the swelling is out.

But Reid wouldn’t confirm that Houston will be ready to play this coming Sunday in Washington.

“He’s going to shoot for that,” Reid said. “I don’t know if that’s real or not real, but that’s his mindset. We’ve got to see how he does here. He’s made some strides, but I think that would be quite a feat if he were to make it (against Washington).”

    Good news on Albert. Hopefully Fasano won’t be out long either. Houston shouldn’t rush back until he’s really ready to go. We’ll need all of them in the playoffs.

    It is just me from my seats? I felt like the offense regained it’s momentum when Fisher came in at RT and Stephenson moved to LT. Fisher was able to stay in front of Miller much better than Albert from my view(1st row upper on the 25).
    I question Dorsey will spend the money to keep Albert and I’m fine with that.
    Schwartz is definitely an upgrade from Asamoah. I could see Schwartz replacing Allen on the stretch run when Asamoah is ready.
