KC Chiefs injury report includes Brandon Flowers, 4 other starters

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have a few injuries piling up on as they prepare for the New York Giants in Week 4.

The Kansas City Chiefs overcame injuries that kept Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce out for the entire game, and portions of the game for Jeff Allen and Brandon Flowers. The Chiefs continue to deal with injuries heading into Week 4 against the New York Giants.

Herbie Teope has a few notes from Monday's practice at Arrowhead, including the injury report. The Chiefs don't have to officially produce an injury report until Wednesday but Herbie reports the following players did not practice:

CB Brandon Flowers (knee), TE Anthony Fasano (ankle), G Jeff Allen (groin), FB Anthony Sherman (knee), S Kendrick Lewis (ankle), TE Travis Kelce (knee)

FIVE starters. And a No. 2. Not a good situation for the Chiefs. They did well enough last week but that's not a long-term recipe for success.

Flowers is the most important player on that list. Even though some in the Philly area thought he was faking his injuries on Thursday night  to slow down the Eagles offense, he was questionable entering the game with a knee injury. Flowers is a game-changer. His status is the biggest injury story line this week.

Fasano and Kelce both missed last week. Kelce has hardly played at all since the preseason. Sean McGrath filled in for those two last week, picking up 87 percent of the snaps. Kevin Brock, signed off the street last week, played nearly a third of the snaps.

Allen went down with his injury during the game. Geoff Schwartz is a capable back-up in case that's something serious. He could just be getting a day of rest or it could be serious. We'll find out by this weekend.

Teope reports Lewis rolled his ankle in Thursday's game.
