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. Mar 25 - 9:20 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 5.

Fisher has struggled early in his rookie year along with the rest of the high-draft-pick tackles, but his absence is somewhat concerning against the blitz-heavy Titans. The Chiefs will turn to Donald Stephenson at right tackle.

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher sustained a concussion during Sunday's Week 4 win over the Giants.

Fisher, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, left in the first half and was replaced by Donald Stephenson. The Chiefs didn't miss Fisher, outscoring the Giants 21-0 in the second half.

A source tells FOX Sports that Eric Fisher's biggest issues so far have been mental.

Fisher, the No. 1 overall pick, has been one of the league's worst right tackles so far. Through three games, he's given up two sacks and seven quarterback hurries, grading out negatively as both a pass and run blocker. The Chiefs insist his issues stem from moving from the left tackle spot he played at Central Michigan to the right side he's playing now. We suspect it's more about simple adjustment to the speed of the NFL. Fisher is a lock to improve.

Chiefs signed No. 1 overall pick RT Eric Fisher to a four-year contract.

The deal is expected to include offset language and a signing bonus in the range of $14.5 million. With Fisher under contract, Jonathan Cooper, Dee Milliner and Chance Warmack are the only top-ten picks that have yet to sign.

Chiefs selected Central Michigan LT Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall pick.

Fisher (6-foot-7 1/4, 306) made 34 career starts for the Chippewas, including 28 at left tackle. With superior size, length (34 1/2" arms), and athleticism to Luke Joeckel, the Chiefs determined Fisher -- despite his smaller-school background -- was this year's premier left tackle prospect. At the Combine, Fisher ran 5.05 with a 1.70 ten-yard split, pumped 27 reps on the bench, and scored 23 on the Wonderlic. He'll protect Alex Smith's blindside as a rookie. Look for Branden Albert to be traded Friday, probably to the Dolphins.
