Chiefs coach Andy Reid blames LT Eric Fisher's preseason struggles on his offseason surgeries.
Fisher underwent shoulder and sports-hernia operations in the offseason. "Any time you’re coming off a significant injury, you’ve got to continue to battle through," Reid said Monday. "That's what this preseason has been for him." It's an optimistic outlook from Reid, one he's forced to take by the Chiefs' lack of alternatives on Alex Smith's blindside. Fisher has been beaten like a drum all preseason. Saturday against the Vikings looms as a huge test. Aug 18 - 3:45 PM

The Kansas City Star says it might be time to officially worry about LT Eric Fisher.

Fisher's move to left tackle was supposed to solve a lot of the problems he had last year, when he graded out as one of the league's worst right tackles. It hasn't happened that way. Fisher gave up a sack in the preseason opener and then got humiliated by the Panthers on Sunday night. We're not going to completely panic about the No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft, but he's not anywhere near where he should be right now.

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher (sports-hernia operation, shoulder) will be a full participant in training camp.

Fisher has reported early, getting in snaps with a "skeleton crew" on Tuesday. "I had the surgeries, so I needed to get out here, get situated before the vets get here," Fisher said. "I’m glad to be here early so I can get a jump on things." The No. 1 pick of last year's draft, Fisher is coming off a rough rookie campaign, but is replacing Branden Albert on the blindside.

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher (sports-hernia operation, shoulder) has been limited to individual drills in OTAs.

Fisher is missing out on valuable first-team reps as he makes the transition to the blindside, but remains on track to be ready for training camp.
May 27 - 7:00 PM

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher is recovering from shoulder and sports-hernia operations.

According to coach Andy Reid, Fisher is "rehabbing and doing well." No other information about Fisher's operations was disclosed, but it appears he should be ready to roll for training camp. Per Reid, Fisher has also gained five pounds of "good weight" after getting tossed around a bit as a rookie right tackle. The No. 1 pick of last spring's draft will be the Chiefs' blindside protector this season.

Speaking at the league meetings Tuesday, coach Andy Reid said Eric Fisher will play left tackle in 2014.

This was the thought all along, but GM John Dorsey was evasive when discussing the topic at the Combine. Fisher struggled at right tackle as a rookie but never played the position before. A move back to his natural left side will hopefully do him some good. Donald Stephenson is penciled in at right tackle.

An anonymous AFC executive guesses Chiefs OT Eric Fisher wouldn't even be a top-15 pick in the 2014 draft because the class is so strong.

Fisher, of course, went No. 1 overall last April in a class that was considered to be on the weak side. "The whole draft is really strong. Best draft I’ve seen," said new Bucs GM Jason Licht. "It’s probably tilted a little more toward offense, but it’s a strong draft." The 2014 class may not have the surefire quarterback, but it makes up for it with plenty of depth and playmakers.
Mar 2 - 9:47 AM

Chiefs GM John Dorsey was evasive at the Combine when asked if 2013 No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher is ready to move to left tackle.

Fisher struggled mightily in 13 starts as a rookie right tackle. He clearly won't be handed the blind-side job entering camp. "I mean that’s a hypothetical," Dorsey said. "I wouldn’t address that right now." Just after the season, Dorsey stated he wanted Fisher to "gain 15 or 20 pounds," which is a lot. Branden Albert will walk in free agency, leaving Fisher and Donald Stephenson as the Chiefs' only tackles. Stephenson is a below-average NFL offensive lineman.
Feb 26 - 11:00 PM

Chiefs GM John Dorsey said he wants RT Eric Fisher to get bigger and stronger this offseason.

"Size will help him a little bit," Dorsey said. "I think he can gain 15 or 20 pounds. I think he can (weigh) 315 to 320 (pounds). That’s a big deal." Fisher currently tips the scales at 6-foot-8, 305. He struggled mightily as rookie and dealt with various injuries. LT Branden Albert is an impending free agent, so the Chiefs may shift Fisher to Alex Smith's blind side in 2014.
Jan 16 - 10:00 AM

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (groin) has been ruled out for Saturday's Wild Card playoff game versus the Colts.

Donald Stephenson will get the start at right tackle. He started seven games during the regular season and is more than capable of holding his own. Fisher has had a rough rookie year.
Jan 3 - 12:29 PM

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (groin) is questionable for Saturday's Wild Card playoff game against the Colts.

Fisher strained his groin during Tuesday's practice and is sitting out Wednesday's session. The good news for the Chiefs is that LT Branden Albert (knee) is expected back, meaning swing tackle Donald Stephenson could slide in on the right side. Fisher, the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, finished the regular season as Pro Football Focus' No. 70 tackle among 76 qualifiers.
Jan 1 - 12:53 PM

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (shoulder) has been removed from the injury report.

Fisher was active for Week 13, but didn't start. With LT Branden Albert (knee) looking shaky, at best, for Week 14, however, the No. 1 overall pick of April's draft will be back in the starting lineup. Fisher is expected to remain at right tackle, with Donald Stephenson manning the blindside.

Chiefs declared RT Eric Fisher (shoulder) and RG Jon Asamoah (shoulder) inactive for Sunday's Week 12 game against the Chargers.

Impact DE Mike Devito (knee) is also inactive, leaving the Chiefs without three starters. They'll start Geoff Schwartz at right tackle, Donald Stephenson at right guard and Allen Bailey at end. The rest of the Chiefs inactives: QB Tyler Bray, LB Nico Johnson, CB Dunta Robinson and C Eric Kush.

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (shoulder) is not expected to play Sunday against the Chargers.

Fisher hurt his shoulder last week against the Broncos. Coach Andy Reid doesn't believe the injury is a long-term concern. Donald Stephenson will get the start at right tackle in Week 12. Fisher, the No. 1 overall pick in April's draft, has struggled mightily, giving up six sacks and 27 hurries in nine starts. Pro Football Focus grades him out as its No. 72 overall tackle.

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher suffered a shoulder injury in Week 11 against the Broncos.

He's been ruled out for the game. It's possible the Chiefs are just holding him out for precautionary reasons, but Fisher dealt with a shoulder issue earlier this season. His status will be updated no later than Wednesday.
