Chiefs' Eric Fisher loses left tackle job

Eric Fisher's on the move in Kansas City.

As expected, the Chiefs offensive tackle is shifting from the bookend spot back over to the right side, coach Andy Reid told reporters, per Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star.

Donald Stephenson will assume left tackle duties after thriving at the position over 94 snaps during the preseason.

It's another depressing notch in the belt of Fisher, the former top overall pick who battled a high-ankle sprain during the preseason after finishing last year as the NFL's 72nd-ranked tackle among 84 eligible players at his position, per Pro Football Focus.

Kansas City is still waiting for Fisher to make good on his insane draft pedigree. He was regarded by many as the best blocker of the bunch in 2013, topping a selection process that saw three tackles taken with the top four picks. Entering the third year of a four-year, $22.19 million deal, Fisher remains one of the league's most overpaid "stars."
