Chiefs-Eagles injury report: Anthony Fasano likely out, Brandon Flowers questionable

New, comments

The KC Chiefs have four starters listed on the injury report with at least one of them not expected to play. Read on for the final injury report before Thursday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Kansas City Chiefs final injury report on Wednesday (via ESPN's Adam Teicher) looks an awful lot like Tuesday's edition. TE Anthony Fasano is NOT expected to play due to a sprained ankle. He is listed as doubtful and guys that are doubtful almost never play. So don't expect to see Fasano out there. He didn't practice at all this week.

This creates a big question at tight end. TE Travis Kelce is listed as questionable and has hardly played at all this season despite being active. Even if he plays, I wouldn't expect to see a lot of snaps out of him. That brings us to TE Sean McGrath, who saw his workload increase from Week 1 to Week 2. He was picked up shortly before the season from the Seattle Seahawks. Then there's TE Kevin Brock, who was signed just this week. His signing told us a lot about what the Chiefs thought of the health of Fasano and Kelce. I would expect him to play. He was with the Chiefs this offseason so he should have a decent grasp of the offense.

Those are the big concerns right now. Flowers is questionable but I haven't sensed any serious concern that he will miss the game, so my prediction is that he will be in there. If he's not then that that might be a bigger issue than tight end.

LT Branden Albert, sidelined with a shoulder sprain, is expected to play.

Here's the full injury report:

Doubtful: TE Anthony Fasano (ankle)

Questionable: CB Brandon Flowers (knee), TE Travis Kelce (knee)

Probable: LT Branden Albert (shoulder), DE Mike DeVito (neck), LB Nico Johnson (ankle), LB Dezman Moses (toe), LB James-Michael Johnson (neck)
