Only One Player Misses Chiefs Practice

The Kansas City Chiefs are still sporting an injury report with 12 players, but they are still taking a huge step towards getting healthy.

After practice Wednesday, nine players were listed as full participants, including OT Branden Albert, G Jeff Allen, G Jon Asamoah, WR Donnie Avery, P Dustin Colquitt and DT Dontari Poe. All six starters should be able to go Sunday when the Houston Texans visit Arrowhead Stadium

Even better news, RB Jamaal Charles, OT Eric Fisher and LB Justin Houston — all on last week’s injury report — aren’t to start off the week. Each of the previous two weeks Charles took a day off at the start of the week to rest the extreme blisters on his feet.

The Chiefs can even take positives out of the two limited participants: TE Anthony Fasano and CB Brandon Flowers. Fasano has been out since Week 2 and is making it look like he could be back on the field with QB Alex Smith and the Kansas City offense. Flowers, meanwhile, was forced to sit out last week after he tweaked his healthy knee.

Even rookie S Sanders Commings, currently on the Injured Reserve/Designated To Return was out on the field for the first time since the very first week of practices over the summer.

Though he was able to fight through an ankle injury to play against the Oakland Raiders, S Kendrick Lewis was the only Chief that did not participate in practice.

On the other side, the Texans are sporting one of the league’s longest injury reports with 17 players. Starting QB Matt Schaub missed practice, as expected, and we won’t know if he can play or not until later in the week. All told there were nine Houston players limited or unable to practice.
