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.
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.
