It looks like Chiefs starting LT Eric Fisher is going to try and play tonight as the Chiefs announced he is active for the game tonight against the Redskins. I sat here in the press box and watched him warm up on the field just a little bit ago and I couldn’t obviously tell whether he was gimpy because we’re so far away ... but he seemed OK, I guess? You get what you pay for around here when it comes to our pregame reporting.
Former Chiefs lineman Geoff Schwartz said this on Twitter about not practicing all week and then playing like Fisher: “While it’s good Fisher is active, I’ve played a game (without) practicing all week (with a) back injury. I didn’t play well. Lineman need practice reps.”
If Fisher doesn’t play or has to come out, we think Cam Erving, who came over in a trade from the Browns a few weeks ago, could come in and play left or right tackle. That’s just a guess at this point though as neither LT Eric Fisher nor RT Mitch Schwartz have missed a game since 2015.
The other notable injuries this week are LB Dee Ford and C Mitch Morse. They were both ruled out earlier this week.
The Chiefs inactives for tonight’s game:
C Mitch Morse
LB Dee Ford
QB Tyler Bray
CB DJ White
LB Kevin Pierre-Louis
G Parker Ehinger
WR Jehu Chesso
