Branden Albert Injury Update: Hyperextended Elbow

According to the Kansas City Star, Branden Albert has a hyperextended elbow and will likely be out when the Chiefs visit Carolina next Sunday. I’d guess that he’ll be back after the bye week, the same week Brodie Croyle is scheduled back. Until then, we’ll get a good look at Herb Taylor, who filled in admirably today.

It could have been worse, too. On TV, due to the angle, it kind of looked like he hurt his right knee. Thankfully, that didn’t happen. This is much less severe than it could have been. I also don’t think he’s injury prone. It isn’t uncommon for an O-lineman to have someone fall on them and injure them at the tail end of the play.
