Eric Fisher's injuries: Thumb, finger, and shoulder

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The national media tour through Kansas City continues. Up today is Ian Rapoport of NFL Network who visited the Chiefs facility and spoke with head coach Andy Reid and GM John Dorsey coming away with some insight on Eric Fisher's injuries.

We know KC Chiefs No. 1 pick Eric Fisher has been dealing with hand and shoulder injuries. Now we finally have a little detail to add to those. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport visited the Chiefs at their practice facility and came away with a few details on Fisher's injuries.

Here's what we know about Fisher's injuries after this report:

-Fisher has "gamekeeper's thumb", similar to "skier's thumb". I have never heard of it but it has it's own Wikipedia page. Read about it more there but it's a ligament injury.

-There is a finger injury on the other hand. So that's injuries to both hands. It was reported by ESPN's John Clayton a while back that Fisher suffered injuries to both hands in the first few days of camp, so he could've been dealing with this for a while.

-He also has a "soft-tissue" injury in one shoulder. We knew about a shoulder injury, just not exactly what it was. This is a little more detail.

Dorsey told Rapoport that Fisher can't "fully engage 100 percent", which would help explain some of his struggles last week against the 49ers. Dorsey talked more about Fisher on 810 WHB this morning.

I encourage you to read the full report at NFL.com. There are some good nuggets of info from the Chiefs GM and head coach.
