Kansas City returns from Denver battered, bruised and no longer perfect.
The team announced yesterday that rookie offensive tackle Eric Fisher and defensive linemen Mike DeVito and Tyson Jackson each missed all of practice with injuries. Fisher missed practice with an aggravation of a shoulder injury that has plagued him since the preseason. He is considered day-to-day at this point.
Also day-to-day are Jackson and DeVito. Jackson is listed as dealing with an abdomen injury while DeVito injured his knee. The injuries may have had something to do with Chiefs signing former Patriots defensive lineman Kyle Love. Although KC released defensive lineman Anthony Toribio to make room for him, so it may not be related.
Offensive guard Jon Asamoah was listed as limited in practice due to a shoulder injury. Others who made the list were Mike Catapano (ankle), Sanders Commings (shoulder), Anthony Fasano (knee/ankle), Derrick Johnson (wrist), and Anthony Sherman (knee). All were listed as being full participants in practice.
San Diego has a host of injuries they are dealing with as well. Offensive tackle King Dunlap (neck), linebacker Jarret Johnson (hand), cornerback Johnny Patrick (concussion), and Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice on Wednesday. Wide receiver Vincent Brown (shoulder) was listed as being limited in practice.
Safety Jahleel Addae (ankle), receiver Keenan Allen (knee), defensive end Lawrence Guy (toe), center Nick Hardwick (neck), running back Ryan Mathews (hamstring), and linebacker Manti Te’o (elbow) were all listed on the injury report but participated fully in practice.
Kansas City hosts the Chargers this Sunday at noon.
