Albert Fine-stein?


Yes, this is one of my wackiest titles yet–sue me. It’s late and I’m deliriously tired. Anyway, the big news is that Branden Albert is pretty much healthy and may indeed play for the Chiefs this Sunday in–GULP!–New England. Still, I’d rather have him than not, and I can’t wait to see Phat Albert play. Richard Seymour and Co. might just get an unexpected dancing partner. From The Star:

Rookie left tackle Branden Albert is healthy enough at least to return to practice this week. After missing more than four weeks because of a sprained foot, Albert might even play Sunday when the Chiefs begin the regular season at New England.

“Not ruling him out at all,” Herm Edwards said. “Not one bit.”

The Chiefs are being careful with Albert and the injury he suffered July 31. It forced the 6-foot-5, 316-pounder to miss all but five days of the preseason, and he initially needed crutches and a walking boot to get around. Last week, he did light calisthenics and is expected to return full-speed when the Chiefs resume practice Wednesday.

Very exciting to say the least.

Thoughts? Will he play? Will Damion McIntosh get benched in favor of Herb Taylor? Will Adrian Jones?
