Taking active part in the two-hour practice was rookie LT Branden Albert. He took every snap with the first-team offense, his first extensive practice time since since suffering a foot injury way back on July 31st in a joint workout with the Minnesota Vikings in River Falls. Herm Edwards wasn’t willing to commit to Albert being the starter on Sunday against the Patriots. What he left unsaid is this: if Albert shows up Thursday morning and has no problems with his foot from all the work, he’s the man.
Up until today, Albert was looking seriously at playing his first NFL game in Week 2, at Arrowhead Stadium. Until last week, Albert finally returning to practice was good news. This, of course, is a fantastic progress report to hear from Bob Gretz. Venture a guess in today's poll as to Albert's Week 1 status.
More to come later. Thanks again for your patience with my lack of posting.
