Eric Fisher injured, third Chief to leave with an injury

First it was Justin Houston and then it was Jeff Allen and now it's Eric Fisher. The Kansas City Chiefs saw Fisher go down after knocking heads on a block with a Bills defender. It appeared they were looking at him for a potential concussion, which means he will go through the concussion protocol and will need to be cleared by doctors before returning.

UPDATE: Chiefs say it's a neck injury and he's questionable to return.

Donald Stephenson replaced Fisher, which means the Chiefs now have a new left tackle and left guard. They are now out of backup offensive linemen so they're going to have a serious problem if another lineman is injured.

Stephenson has potential as a good player and has had stretches where he played really well. The Chiefs gave him a shot as a starter this year and he just put up too many up and down performances. Clearly, he has some talent but he needs to put it all together. We will see in this game how he does off the bench.
