Chiefs won't have LT Branden Albert, LB Justin Houston vs. Redskins
The Chiefs will be without three starters when they play in Washington on Sunday. Branden Albert, Justin Houston and Anthony Fasano have all been ruled out.
Nothing's been easy for Kansas City since its Week 10 bye. The Chiefs have lost three straight since then and will now head to Washington without three key starters. Linebacker Justin Houston, left tackle Branden Albert and tight end Anthony Fasano have all been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
For Houston, it will be the second straight game that he's missed. Houston injured his elbow against San Diego in Week 12 and hasn't played since. Despite missing last week's game against the Broncos, the third-year linebacker still ranks fourth in the NFL this season with 11 sacks.
As for Albert, he hyperextended his knee against the Broncos and didn't practice all week. With Albert out, Donald Stephenson is expected to fill-in at left tackle.
"We're fortunate to have good backups who we consider as starters," coach Andy Reid said on Friday. "They’ve started enough games here that we feel comfortable saying that. Donald is one of those."
The Chiefs will also be without Fasano, who suffered a concussion against the Broncos. The eighth-year tight end is second on the team with three touchdown catches, trailing only Dwayne Bowe's four.
