Chiefs vs. Raiders: Injury Report

The Kansas City Chiefs released their first injury report for this weekend’s game against the Oakland Raiders.

Here’s the damage:

Name Position Injury Wed. Thu. Fri. Game Status
Albert, Branden T Back DNP - - -
Asamoah, Jon OL Thumb FP - - -
Berry, Eric DB Hand FP - - -
Bowe, Dwayne WR Ribs Out Out Out Out
Elam, Abram DB Quad DNP - - -
Flowers, Brandon CB Hamstring LP - - -
Gray, Cyrus RB Shoulder/Neck LP - - -
Hochstein, Russ G Back DNP - - -
Johnson, Derrick LB Hamstring LP - - -
Lewis, Kendrick DB Shoulder FP - - -
Lilja, Ryan G Knee DNP - - -

This report isn’t unlike what we saw last week. Unless they suffered setbacks on Sunday, Berry, Albert, Liljas, DJ, Flowers and Asamoah will probably all play. We’re likely to see DJ and Flowers practicing with caution for the rest of the season, as hamstring injury are known to stick around. Getting as much rest as possible is key for those guys.

Albert sucked it up and played Sunday but he will also probably be treated with caution for the rest of the year. Back injuries can spell doom for a lineman so the Chiefs won’t want to push him.

 

As for Lewis, his shoulder has been an ongoing problem. Luckily, rookie Tysyn Hartman played pretty well in Lewis’ absence. With only three games to go, it might not hurt to get an extended look at the rookie to see if he can be reliable depth moving forward.
