Eric Fisher works with second team, per report


On Thursday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs took the field for their third straight day of OTAs. The offensive line combinations turned some heads, with Donald Stephenson starting at left tackle and Eric Fisher backing him up, according to Adam Teicher of ESPN.

Head coach Andy Reid has been stressing that the team will plug different players in all over the line, looking to start their best five. The Chiefs have a lot of competition going on in that group, especially at center, right guard and right tackle. It would seem left tackle and left guard would be locked down with Fisher and Ben Grubbs, respectively, although things can change when the players get on the field.

All that said, it would be stunning if Fisher is healthy and not starting. Kansas City made a huge investment in Fisher when he was made the first-overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft. The team won’t abandon him after two seasons, especially when progress has been made throughout that time. Reid spoke after the session, and said he actually feels good about what he has seen from the Central Michigan product.

"“It’s the only way you can get Donald some reps there,” Reid said. “We wanted to make sure we’ve got everybody covered.“Actually, Fish has done a very nice job, so I wouldn’t read anything into that. But we’re staying consistent, moving people around.”"

This position will get the most attention throughout training camp. While there are camp battles at receiver and cornerback, this is the most intriguing of the bunch. Reid will be mixing and matching for the foreseeable future, driving all of us completely insane.

"“We’re kind of playing everybody in all different spots, so we don’t even care,” Reid said, referring to the line’s eventual makeup. “We’re going to find the five best guys, that’s what we’re trying to get to. I really don’t care where they play, I just want the five best guys and then we line up and we go play.”"
