As the Kansas City Chiefs prepare for the Cleveland Browns, head coach Andy Reid is happy to report the roster is almost completely healthy.
“There are no injuries to talk about,” Reid told reporters Wednesday.
That’s obviously not completely true, since the Chiefs have seven players on the first injury report, including five starters. But every injured player was able to practice with five of the seven on the injury report participating fully.
The only Chiefs limited were TE Anthony Fasano and S Kendrick Lewis.
After missing four games, Fasano returned to the field in Sunday’s win over the Houston Texans and looked like he didn’t miss a snap.
Lewis was the only player on the injury report last week that was questionable, but started and recorded four tackles. Barring any sort of setback, he should be back out on the field this weekend when the Browns come calling.
Cleveland’s injury situation isn’t quite as clean, with eight players on the first injury report, including two limited and one unable to practice.
The Browns injury problems, however, go even deeper with starting QB Brian Hoyer out for the season after tearing his ACL three weeks ago in a win over the Buffalo Bills. That injury has led to Cleveland to bounce between backups Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell.
