The Chiefs improved to 6-0 against the Raiders on Sunday despite losing left tackle Branden Albert to knee and elbow injuries during the contest.
According to coach Andy Reid, the team should have Albert back as they make a push for their seventh win against the Texans in Week Seven. Reid said Monday that he expects to have Albert in the lineup for that game after the team ruled out any serious injury for the tackle.
“I think he’ll be OK,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “It doesn’t seem too severe.”
Things are a bit less clear for cornerback Brandon Flowers, who missed Sunday’s game with a knee injury that also kept him from playing in Week Four. Reid said Flowers was still dealing with knee inflammation, which could signal another week of limited practices and another game-time decision come Sunday. Tight end Anthony Fasano, who has missed the last three games with knee and ankle injuries, could return to practice on Wednesday. Fasano’s return would sure up a tight end group thinned out by season-ending injuries to Travis Kelce and Tony Moeaki.
