Injury situation could be interesting

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Going to be interesting to see who is able to practice for the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday as they begin preparation for this weekend's game against the Redskins in Washington.

Albert
Left tackle Branden Albert has a hyperextended knee and though he could play against Washington, it might be too soon for him to participate in practice in any significant way. If he doesn't practice, look for the Chiefs to keep Donald Stephenson at left tackle and Eric Fisher on the right side.

The Chiefs probably would have made a move for a tight end if they thought tight end Anthony Fasano (concussion) would be out for an extended period. They still could do that, of course, and could promote one of their practice squad tight ends to the active roster if need be. But Fasano's situation is one to watch. His loss would be a significant one. He has a touchdown catch in each of the past three games.

Don't expect linebacker Justin Houston back in time for this week's game. He had ligament and muscle damage in his elbow, so he's probably another week or two away.

Safety Kendrick Lewis was able to play last week's game after injuring his knee, but there could be some residual soreness there.
