In fact, there’s actually good news to talk about.
Here’s coach Andy Reid’s update, via a recent press release:
“Really there no injuries to talk about,” Reid said. “(Kendrick) Lewis was able to go today. Everybody practiced today and did a nice job.”
“We look forward to the challenge of playing the Texans,” he said. “We know they’re a good football team, very talented and well coached. We have to make sure that we continue to prepare these next few days here while we have the time to. The guys did a nice job with it up to this point. They’ve prepared hard and put a lot of time into it. They understand exactly who we’re playing.”
“Everybody practiced today” is a phrase that we haven’t heard for a long while, and yes, everybody includes tight end Anthony Fasano and cornerback Brandon Flowers
Fasano will be a welcome addition to the offense, as he’s as sure-handed as they come at the tight end position.
Getting Flowers back will be big for the defense as well. Marcus Cooper really stepped up in his absence, and now the Chiefs will have some great depth in the secondary. An already great defense gets better now that Flowers is out there and ready to go.
Savor the good news, Addicts. This is rare for the middle of the season.
