Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (ankle) is active for Week 2 against the Broncos.

Fisher was expected to remain sidelined, so it's possible he's active purely on an emergency basis. We expect Jah Reid to make another start at right tackle. Inactive for the Chiefs are WR Frankie Hammond, QB Aaron Murray, CB Steven Nelson, LB Dezman Moses, OG Jeff Allen, TE Brian Parker and DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches.

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (ankle) is expected to remain sidelined for Week 2.

Jah Reid will get the start against the Broncos' fierce front seven. Fisher is week to week.
Sep 17 - 1:24 PM

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said RT Eric Fisher (ankle) will practice Tuesday.

Fisher was held out Week 1 as he continues to recover from a high-ankle sprain. Though he is practicing, Fisher will likely be held out of the Chiefs' Thursday night matchup with Denver. Jah Reid will get another start at right tackle.
Sep 15 - 1:01 PM

Andy Reid denied reports RT Eric Fisher (ankle) requested to be benched for Week 1 because he was not ready to deal with J.J. Watt.

"I know things are out there. That's ridiculous," Reid said. "I was the one that watched him practice. I thought if I put him out there, I'd put him in a terrible situation." This is a nonsense story which can now hopefully be put to bed. Still dealing with an ankle injury, Fisher is unlikely to play Thursday against the Broncos.

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (ankle) will not start in Week 1.

Ex-Raven Jah Reid will start at right tackle, taking on J.J. Watt. It's an extreme mismatch in Houston's favor. Fisher is reportedly "concerned" about his injured ankle. The extent of the ailment is unknown.
Sep 13 - 11:09 AM

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (questionable, ankle) is expected to play in Week 1.

The Chiefs listed Fisher as questionable despite practicing in full this week. He'll likely start, but looks like a game-time decision. Jah Reid would start if Fisher is held out.
Sep 11 - 8:17 PM

The Chiefs have moved Eric Fisher to right tackle.

Fisher has flopped spectacularly on the blind side the past two seasons. The Chiefs have determined that Donald Stephenson is a better option to protect Alex Smith, with Fisher playing on the strong side now, and getting help blocks from tight ends. Fisher was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 draft.
Sep 7 - 1:32 PM

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he thinks LT Eric Fisher (ankle) will play Week 1.

Fisher suffered a high-ankle sprain in practice on August 17. High-ankle injuries can be troublesome, but he will be almost a month removed from the injury when the regular season opens. Fisher should be able to play.
Sep 4 - 8:23 PM

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said LT Eric Fisher (ankle) and RT Jeff Allen (knee) will likely be sidelined another week.

Considering starters rarely play in the fourth preseason game, it is reasonable to expect Fisher and Allen will be held out the rest of the preseason. With both tackles sidelined, the Chiefs turned to Donald Stephenson on the left side and Paul Fanaika on the right in their second preseason game.
Aug 22 - 1:37 PM

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher suffered a high ankle sprain in Monday's practice.

It is a good result after Fisher had to be carted into the training room, but ESPN's Ed Werder cautions he is likely out a "couple weeks." Donald Stephenson is expected to step in at left tackle with Fisher sidelined. With RT Jeff Allen dealing with an MCL sprain, the Chiefs will likely add some depth this week.
Aug 18 - 8:38 AM

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher was carted off the field with an ankle injury in Monday's practice, and will undergo an MRI.

It's not a given that Fisher's injury is serious, but "cart" and "MRI" are never a good combination. Chiefs RT Jeff Allen is already sidelined with an MCL sprain. Donald Stephenson would likely man the blindside were Fisher to miss regular season games.
Aug 17 - 2:14 PM

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher was running with the second team in Thursday's OTAs session.

Donald Stephenson was manning the blindside. Coach Andy Reid said he just wanted to get Stephenson some work on the left, but it's a reminder that Fisher remained one of the league's worst tackles last season. Stephenson was a reserve. The Chiefs have crazily-little depth at tackle, with Jeff Allen checking in as the No. 3.
May 28 - 2:03 PM

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher says he's shed "20-30 pounds of body fat," and currently weighs 314.

It's a confusing statement, as Fisher's listed weight is 315, and he's never been known to struggle with conditioning. Perhaps he bulked up last offseason as he recovered from shoulder and sports-hernia operations. Fisher also says he's the "healthiest I've ever been." Fisher remained a major liability on Alex Smith's blindside last season, but did improve on 2013 even as he shifted from right tackle to left.
Apr 28 - 2:14 PM

Chiefs coach Andy Reid believes LT Eric Fisher made "big strides" in 2014.

Fisher started all 16 games as a sophomore, playing 1,030 of a possible 1,032 snaps on Alex Smith's blindside. He still graded out as one of Pro Football Focus' worst tackles, but improved on 2013 despite making the switch from the right side to the left. Staying on the field was a big step in the right direction for the No. 1 overall pick of the 2013 draft, but Fisher needs to prove in 2015 that he's not destined for a career of turnstile duties.
