After losing to the Denver Broncos 28-35, the Kansas City Chiefs face the tough task of trying to get back onto the winning track.
The Chiefs are on a three game losing streak and have to go out to Washington D.C. next weekend to face the Redskins.
Every win from here on out is important, but so is getting healthy. Often times, it’s not the best team that makes a run through the playoffs, but the most healthy team.
After the game, head coach Andy Reid discussed injuries with the media:
“Ok, as far as injuries go, Anthony Fasano has a concussion. (Branden) Albert has a knee sprain, the x-rays were negative,” he said. “We’ll do an MRI on that tomorrow and just see how he does overnight here. Kendrick Lewis also strained his knee and was able to come back in. He was out for a bit and came back in and finished the game,” Reid explained.
Concussions are a huge deal in today’s NFL, so Fasano’s injury will have to be monitored closely. He’s been a huge part of the offensive turnaround for Kansas City, so losing him for any amount of time would be a huge blow. He’s also dealing with a knee sprain along with his concussion.
Losing Albert, who is the Chiefs’ starting left tackle, would hurt as well. Left tackle is arguably one of the most important positions on a football team. During his Monday press conference though, Reid said that Albert is day-to-day, which is encouraging.
