Chiefs Could Activate Barry Richardson

Last Sunday the Kansas City Chiefs were down to five offensive linemen after LT Branden Albert and RG Mike Goff went down with injuries.  

With Albert's status uncertain for Sunday, the Chiefs could promote tackle Barry Richardson from the practice squad head coach Todd Haley said today.

"I would say there’s a chance of that, too," Haley said when asked about Richardson possibly being promoted.  "We just have to evaluate today’s tape and see where we’re at and try to make the right decision."

Richardson played right tackle during the preseason but was placed on the practice squad last month.

Like we told you earlier, Albert could be active even if he's not starting.  My best guess is that Richardson's best chance of being promoted is if Albert can't go.

The Chiefs have a couple of other linemen on the practice squad but Richardson has the most experience and could backup either tackle position.

Things could be worse.  The Redskins left tackle Chris Samuels could miss the entire season according to recent reports.
