Chiefs injury report: Anthony Fasano, Brandon Flowers on the mend

The Kansas City Chiefs released their first injury report of Houston Texans week. Kendrick Lewis was the only Chief who did not practice while two more were limited (Anthony Fasano and Brandon Flowers). The once banged up Chiefs are starting to get healthier.

Did not practice: S Kendrick Lewis

He has been working through an ankle injury. Andy Reid said that Kendrick not practicing much last week was the only way to get him on the field so it appears we're on track for a similar schedule this week. He has missed the last three Wednesday practices with that ankle injury. He didn't practice last Thursday but he did on the two previous Thursday before that. He's been limited the last three Fridays.

Limited practice: TE Anthony Fasano (ankle / knee), CB Brandon Flowers (knee)

The big question marks, as usual. Fasano told Herbie Teope and other reporters he was "pretty confident" he'd be on the field this week. He has not played since Week 2 due to ankle and knee injuries.

That statement right there tells us that Fasano probably isn't coming off of the injury report anytime soon. Whatever his injury is, it has lingered and will linger.

Meanwhile, Flowers was out last week against the Raiders but the Chiefs defense was still strong. That Marcus Cooper is playing so well could cause Andy Reid to give Flowers a little more rest than he would have if there weren't a capable back-up on the roster. I don't know whether Flowers will be ready to play or not.

Full practice: OT Branden Albert (knee / elbow), G Jeff Allen (groin / hand), G Jon Asamoah (knee), WR Donnie Avery (shoulder), TE Kevin Brock (shoulder), P Dustin Colquitt (right knee), LB Dezman Moses (toe), DT Dontari Poe (ankle), RB Anthony Sherman (knee)

All these guys should play.

Great news that Albert is practicing in full. He went down twice in last weekend's game, which had us worrying a little bit.

Poe missed a few plays last week against the Raiders with an ankle injury. Reid said he'd been dealing with an ankle injury for a few weeks, so that's why he's now on the injury report.
