Chiefs Vs. Browns: Final Injury Report

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

It’s game day and the Kansas City Chiefs are in Cleveland to take on the Browns.

The Chiefs won last week, beating the Panthers at Arrowhead but they also paid a price. A number of players got banged up last week and those injuries have lingered.

Let’s take a look at the final injury report ahead of today’s game.

Name Position Injury Wed. Thu. Fri. Game Status
Albert, Branden T Back LP LP LP questionable
Allen, Jeff OL Illness DNP FP LP questionable
Bailey, Allen DE Injured Reserve DNP - - -
Berry, Eric DB Hand/Illness LP DNP LP questionable
Elam, Abram DB Quad DNP DNP DNP doubtful
Flowers, Brandon CB Hamstring DNP DNP LP questionable
Hali, Tamba LB Knee LP LP FP probable
Hochstein, Russ G Back - - LP questionable
Johnson, Derrick LB Hamstring DNP DNP LP questionable
Lewis, Kendrick DB Shoulder LP LP LP questionable
Lilja, Ryan G Knee DNP DNP FP probable

There is a lot of “questionable” here. It looks like Tamba will play which is good because he’ll be able to join Justin Houston in getting after rookie QB Brandon Weeden.

On the offensive line, it looks like guard Ryan Lilja will also play. He sat out the week of practice before participating in-full on Friday to earn himself a “probable” designation. He’s been suffering from a knee injury.

The other big names here are LT Branden Albert, LB Derrick Johnson, S Eric Berry and CB Brandon Flowers. All of them are “questionable.”

Albert missed last week’s game, however rookie Donald Stephenson stepped in and held his own. If Albert is out again today it might not be such a bad thing. We know he can play so it could be fun to get another look at Stephenson who could be the future at one of the tackle positions.

Johnson and Flowers have hamstring injuries. Both players sat out Wednesday and Thursday practice and participated on a limited basis on Friday. Hamstrings can be tricky so I’d wager both players will stretch and warmup today and will be game-time decisions.

Berry is all kinds of messed up. He injured his hand in last week’s game and now he also has an illness.

We’ll have the game day inactives for you approximately 90 minutes before kickoff.
