Being banged up at this part of the season is not a huge surprise—this is the NFL after all—and the Chiefs have had some good luck in 2013 compared to many other teams in the league (Google Green Bay Packers/Aaron Rodgers).
Still, there are a few notable names who are hurting this week and a few of them may not see the field in this very important matchup with the Chargers.
Head coach Andy Reid broke down the injury report with the media.
“Alright as far as injuries go, Mike DeVito we have listed as out with a knee sprain. Then Eric Fisher didn’t practice today. He is listed as doubtful. (Jon) Asamoah and (Tyson) Jackson both practiced full today,” Reid explained.
The status of DeVito and Fisher is a tad bit concerning, considering the roles each has played for the Chiefs’ this season. Fisher, in particular, has struggled with injury in 2013, and that’s never good to see from the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft.
The Chiefs recently picked up wide receiver Kyle Williams off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers, but unfortunately he’ll have to go to the injured reserve because of an ACL sprain.
Reid spoke on his status as well, saying, “Kyle Williams’ situation yesterday was that he practiced, the whole practice, and tweaked his knee, to where he tweaked it and never missed a play. He had that surgically repaired and he partially tore his ACL, the same ACL that he has worked his tail off to get back so he is going to have to have that fixed. He’s done obviously.”
Finally, both Tyson Jackson and Jon Asamoah are listed as questionable, per Reid.
