Chiefs injury report: 8 starters listed as Browns week begins

Oh, that's it? Only eight starters?

Tom Szczerbowski

Six Kansas City Chiefs players did not practice on Wednesday and four more were limited, leaving 10 total players on the first injury report of Cleveland Browns week. Brandon Flowers, Derrick Johnson, Jeff Allen and Ryan Lilja are among the starters that sat out practice on Wednesday.

Did not practice: Jeff Allen, Allen Bailey, Abe Elam, Brandon Flowers, Derrick Johnson, Ryan Lilja

Allen was sick so he didn't practice today. Assuming that's just a flu bug or something, he should be back.

Elam and Flowers were both hurt in Sunday's game, having to leave the game, and so was DJ. Flowers and DJ have hamstring injuries -- or as Romeo would say, "They've got a ham" -- while Elam has a quad injury.

Bailey has an ankle injury. Not sure what's up with it.

Limited practice: Branden Albert, Eric Berry, Tamba Hali and Kendrick Lewis

Great news on Albert. Even limited practices at this point are a good sign for this week. Rookie Donald Stephenson has started in his place the last two weeks -- the rookie actually did fine -- but Albert likely comes back this week.

Berry has a hand injury suffered last weekend. He left Sunday's game and when he returned he had a brace or cast on his hand. If he came back last week, you gotta think he's ready to roll this week.

Hali and Lewis were both listed on here last week. Tamba played, so i'm guessing he'll be fine this week. Lewis was out due to injury, so his status is more questionable.
