Chiefs say LT Eric Fisher’s status for Redskins game is up in the air

The Kansas City Chiefs injury situation took a turn on Friday when starting LT Eric Fisher missed practice with a back injury. His status for Monday night against the Redskins is up in the air, according to Chiefs coach Andy Reid.

This would be a big loss as the Chiefs swing tackle, Cam Erving, came over in a trade a few weeks ago. Or else the Chiefs have some sort of other plan for replacing Fisher if he can’t go. Sounds like this will be a game time decision. Against a Redskins pass rush that looked pretty good last week this one could hurt.

The Chiefs also say that starters LB Dee Ford and C Mitch Morse will not play with injuries. Morse, we knew about. Ford, his injury came after last week’s game in LA. He’ll be replaced by Frank Zombo and perhaps some of Tanoh Kpassagnon while we expect Zach Fulton to start in place of Morse once again. Ford’s loss will be felt in the pass rush department but Justin Houston is the real driver there and he’s still playing.
