Chiefs Injury Report vs. Texans Looking Good

The Houston Texans will come to Arrowhead Stadium Sunday with their third string quarterback under center. They’ll also be facing a Kansas City Chiefs team that is almost completely healthy.

Sure, Andy Reid’s team has 13 players on their latest injury report — up one from Wednesday – but nine of those were able to fully participant including seven starters.

The one player added was reserve DT Jaye Howard. He joined the injury report as being unable to practice and since he wasn’t a lock to be active on Sunday, it’s not a change that will have an impact on the game.

Right now the only questions for the Chiefs surround TE Anthony Fasano and CB Brandon Flowers. The veteran tight end hasn’t played since suffering an ankle injury in Week 2, but he seems to be trying to fight through the pain and get back out on the field. Meanwhile, Flowers is battling injuries in both knees and would be a huge boost for a Kansas City secondary that had to play without him last week.

The continued absence of RB Jamaal Charles and his blisters on the injury report is a welcome sight. Now the Chiefs just need to worry about keeping him healthy and that hopefully means getting some of his touches to backups Knile Davis and Cyrus Gray.

For the Houston Texans G Wade Smith was upgraded to a limited participation, but RB Arian Foster went from a full participant on Wednesday to being unable to practice Thursday.
