Starting left tackle Branden Albert was carted off the field Sunday against the Denver Broncos after suffering an ugly left knee injury. Donald Stephenson moved to left tackle, with rookie Eric Fisher coming into the game at right tackle. Kansas City also lost starting tight end Anthony Fasano to a concussion.
The injury could be doubly painful because Albert, the Chiefs' franchise player, is in a contract year. Fisher does not look ready to take on a bigger role. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Albert is set to have an MRI on his knee Monday and the hope is that the left tackle dodged a bullet, per a person who spoke to Albert.
