Donald Stephenson took Albert's spot on the left side and Eric Fisher entered his spot at right tackle.
Albert, the Chiefs starting left tackle, was tangled up with Broncos LB Von Miller in the fourth quarter of the game. Alex Smith broke out of the pocket to run the ball. Albert stayed on his block and appeared to tweak his leg on the opponent laying on the ground as the play was ending.
Albert stayed on the ground as Chiefs trainers came out to tend to him. After a few minutes, the team called for the cart, which was rolled out to help him off the field.
Update: Chiefs think they "dodged a bullet", according to PFT
X rays on injury to Albert were negative. MRI to come tomorrow— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) December 2, 2013
