With the Kansas City Chiefs losing LT Branden Albert this week against the Redskins to an ankle injury, the team has promoted their 2008 6th round pick T Barry Richardson. Josh Looney gave the official heads up and nycchief let us know here in the FanShots.

Richardson played in six games last season, starting none.

The Chiefs also released LB Justin Rogers from the 53-man active roster to make room for Richardson. Rogers was signed just a few days ago after the Chiefs moved RB Jackie Battle to injured reserve.

Here's the team's starting offensive line for tomorrow's game:

  • LT Wade Smith
  • LG Brian Waters
  • C Rudy Niswanger
  • RG Mike Goff
  • RT Ryan O'Callaghan

The reserves are G Andy Alleman, T Ikechuku Ndukwe and T Barry Richardson. Both Alleman and Ndukwe have had minor injury issues this season, with Alleman appearing on this week's injury report as probable with a shoulder injury.

Yesterday, Joel speculated that Richardson could be promoted. The only remaining offensive linemen on the team are on the practice squad - G Daryl Harris and T Chris Patrick.
