Practice Report 10/23 Update

From the Truman Sports Complex

The chances do not look good for starting LT Branden Albert being on the field Sunday against the Chargers with the No. 1 offense.

Albert is listed as questionable on the Chiefs official injury report to the league office. Head coach Todd Haley said it would be a game time decision. Haley did not rule out the possibility that Albert could be active and not start.

Other than Albert, there appears to be no game-day inactive decisions that will be based on injuries. Also on the club’s injury report are LG Brian Waters (ankle), RT Ryan O’Callaghan (shoulder) and FS Jarrad Page (shoulder). All are listed as probable. O’Callaghan suffered some sort of neck/shoulder  injury during Thursday’s  practice,  but he was working with the No. 1 offense on Friday, wearing a neck roll.

Haley took his team indoors for Friday’s final practice of Chargers week.

Albert was not working with the first or second team offensive lines, so the chances  of him starting are slim. Wade Smith will open at LT. It appears that Jon McGraw will open at free safety, which would likely mean that Page would be  inactive since his special teams involvement is minimal.

    Just thought I’d share this with you guys. Bill Williamson over at ESPN posted this earlier:

    “Can the Chiefs hold onto the ball this time? The last time San Diego visited Kansas City, the AFC West dominoes began to fall. It all started when the Chiefs couldn’t hold on to an onsides kick attempt late in the game. It would have sealed the win for the Chiefs. Instead, San Diego completed an unlikely Week 15 comeback. Had the Chiefs held on for the win, Denver would have clinched the division. Had that happened, Mike Shanahan wouldn’t have been fired. Jay Cutler wouldn’t have been traded. Josh McDaniels likely would have been the choice in Kansas City by new general manager Scott Pioli. Norv Turner likely would have been fired and the Chargers would be starting over instead of the Broncos. It’s truly amazing what kind of impact one bounce of the ball can have on a division.”

    Funny how DBowe’s inconsistent hands completely changed the face of our entire division! Who knows if this domino effect would have actually happened, but it seems plausible. Gotta love the NFL! It’s full of stories like this every year.

    yea that was written last year also, but the one thing this story is assuming is that Carl and Herm would have been relieved of their duties and would the team have gotten wins in the last games of the season to better their record after the win over the chargers?? your right though the stories are very interesting…
