We knew Eric Fisher would not start today but Fasano being out is a bit of a surprise since he practiced for most of the week. The result means the Chiefs are going to need strong performances from McGrath and Kevin Brock at tight end. Tennessee’s defense is very strong and are very good at taking away underneath routes. Not having Fasano available could be a big issue for the Chiefs offense.
Still, the Chiefs are healthier this week than they have been in a while. Brandon Flowers, Kendrick Lewis, Jamaal Charles, Dustin Colquitt, Jeff Allen, Jon Asamoah, Rodney Hudson, Anthony Sherman, Marcus Cooper, and James-Michael Johnson are all active despite being on the injury report this week. Both Allen and Flowers missed last week due to injury.
