The Kansas City Chiefs are off to a hot 2-0 start after wins over the Jacksonville Jaguars and Dallas Cowboys, but starting left tackle Branden Albert was shaken up with a shoulder injury on Sunday afternoon and he missed practice on Monday.

The Chiefs gave Albert some time off due to their short week, but there is not much concern that he will miss the team’s Thursday night match up in Philadelphia against Chip Kelly and the Eagles.

“He’s a little sore today,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, via Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star. “But I think he’ll be OK.”

The official diagnosis for Albert is a sprained AC joint.

Reid would love to have his team as close to full strength as possible for his return to Philadelphia, so the positive news around Albert has to be a welcomed sign as they prepare for the big match up.

Kansas City has been very impressive over the first two weeks, so they will look to continue that momentum in Week Three.
