Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert suffered a hyperextended knee in Sunday’s loss to Denver, head coach Andy Reid said at his Monday press conference.

Albert’s injury is a “day-to-day situation,” Reid said.

Considering that Albert left Sunday’s game on a cart, player and team couldn’t have received much better news. As PFT reported on Sunday, the early indications were that Albert was not seriously injured.

Also on Monday, Reid said that outside linebacker Justin Houston was “making progress” in his return from an elbow injury that kept him out of the Denver loss. However, per Adam Teicher of ESPN.com, Reid indicated that Houston may not be ready for Sunday’s game at Washington.

Reid also disclosed that tight end Anthony Fasano has a knee ailment and is undergoing the league’s concussion testing, Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star reported Monday.
