Yesterday, the Kansas City Chiefs began preparations for this week’s game against the Carolina Panthers.
There are only five players on the injury report, but the bad news is that they are all key players. Along the offensive line, Branden Albert sat out with a back injury and C/G Ryan Lilja took the day off due to his knee.
Dexter McCluster, who suffered a head injury Sunday, was able to participate in the walk-through portion of practice but isn’t expected to be cleared until today.
On defense, FS Kendrick Lewis, who re-injured his shoulder Sunday, did not practice.
Lastly, OLB Tamba Hali also did not practice as he is ailing from a sore knee.
We’ll track these injuries throughout the week. If I had to guess, I’d say Albert is the one player in real danger of not playing Sunday. We’ll have to see how the others progress.
