Chiefs injury report: KC could be missing 2 more offensive line starters

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Chiefs could be missing two more starters along the offensive line.

The Kansas City Chiefs will release their final injury report on Friday afternoon but here's where things stand following Thursday's practice.

Did not practice: Branden Albert, Ryan Lilja

Neither has practiced at all this week. This is a major concern. Albert's injury is a back issue, which flared up last week against the Bengals. Lilja was a late add to the injury report last week, missing the Bengals game with a knee injury.

We've always said that players who don't practice at all during the week are highly unlikely to play. Maybe so, but that doesn't mean they can't play. Romeo Crennel was asked on Thursday if Friday is the drop dead day he needs to see Albert and Lilja out there practicing.

"We can say drop dead, but we'd like to see them practice tomorrow," Crennel said. "Generally with veterans, I give them a little bit more leeway, particularly if they're important veterans. They know what it takes. They know what they're bodies are telling them, and generally they are pretty up front about where they are and what they think they can do. I'll give them as much time as I can before making a decision."

Limited practice: Jon Asamoah, Steve Maneri, Tony Moeaki

Asamoah was out last week with that hand injury. This is just about finding a comfort level with him and his cast. Crennel said: "If a discomfort of the injury itself settles down and he can have contact without a flair up too much, then I think he'll be able to play."

Moeaki was jacked in last week's game, and now has shoulder/back injuries. He's been limited both days.

Full practice: Jon Baldwin, Dwayne Bowe

Both should be good to go. They were both limited on Wednesday and practiced in full on Thursday. If you're practicing in full this early in the week, you should be good to go.
