The Kansas City Chiefs advanced to 4-0 today with an impressive performance over the New York Giants, but the Chiefs did take a little hit to their offensive line. While the win doubled their win total from a season ago, the team will now await word on their rookie right tackle.
According to reports, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Eric Fisher, was diagnosed with a “mild” concussion.
The news comes via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
As with all concussions, Fisher will need to undergo a flurry of tests before he is cleared by an independent neurologist and able to return to the field.
If the early diagnosis is a “mild” concussion — whatever that means — then the team shouldn’t worry about losing their starting right tackle for any significant time.
It’s an exciting time for the Kansas City Chiefs as their team is showing some promise under new head coach Andy Reid, so they want to keep their roster as healthy as possible so that they can prove they are a real threat in the NFL moving forward.
