Andy Reid's good news: 'There are no injuries to talk about'

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Chiefs head coach said the team was fully healthy for practice on Monday.

At each and every media session with an NFL head coach, the topic jumps to the team's curent injury report and the status of each player. In week eight, as the team prepped for practice on Wednesday, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid started with a great sentence for fans to hear:

"There are no injures to talk about."

The Chiefs will be healthy for today's walkthrough and seem to be at full strength heading into Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. Reid admitted the team has been fortunate to avoid any major injuries to this point while others are struggling trying to fill multiple spots on the roster.

"It's a good thing," Reid said. "This is a rough business and injuries do take place, I get it. We've been fortunate, that's really what it is. The guys are all back now playing with us. We had our share there and the guys that stepped in did a nice job. That helped. That's a tribute to John (Dorsey) and that's a tribute to the players and coaches. Then, Rick (Burkholder) for the job he does working with these guys and getting (them) back. He does a nice job with his crew."

Reid had great praise for his training staff and said it was important to keep the trainers in place when he first took the job as head coach.

"Some of it is chance, just injuries," Reid said. "Sometimes you get those things, it happens. Sometimes they come in waves. That's how it works. The training that Barry (Rubin) has put them through and then the care that Rick (Burkholder) and the docs and the rest of the trainers give the players is top notch."

The Chiefs have dealt with several injuries this season already, including players like Brandon Flowers, Sanders Commings, Anthony Fasano and Tony Moeaki for several weeks. In fact, Moeaki was just waived today with an injury settlement. The good news is that they're so healthy at this point in a season in which they are already undefeated.
