Chiefs coach Andy Reid doesn’t think OT Eric Fisher will play vs Chargers, shoulder injury not long term


The Kansas City Chiefs can breathe a sigh of relief about their cornerstone pick at tackle, Eric Fisher. Coach Andy Reid isn’t concerned about a long time issue, but that won’t help KC today.

The San Diego Chargers are going into Arrowhead today and the 4-6 Chargers have been struggling pretty hard this season. The Chargers have a better running game than they’ve had in the past, but they are still built on the arm of Phillip Rivers and unfortunately, Rivers hasn’t had much success in the type of cold weather that they will face today.

If the Chiefs can take Stephenson and open some holes for their running backs, they should be able to grind out a win to get to 10-1. If you’re a Chiefs fan, hopefully the Reid diagnosis is correct and the number one NFL pick won’t miss too much time on the back end of this thing.
