Chiefs coach Andy Reid said LT Eric Fisher's (questionable, back) status is "up in the air" for Monday night's game with Washington.

Fisher is trending in the wrong direction after missing practice the last two days. He'll be a game-time decision, but this is a potential downgrade to the offensive line. Cam Erving is Fisher's backup, though the Chiefs could move Bryan Witzmann to one of the tackle spots, with Parker Ehinger playing left guard.

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher (back) missed Friday's practice.

It's a downgrade after Fisher was limited on Thursday. Fisher's status will be worth tracking leading up to Monday night's game with Washington.

Chiefs signed LT Eric Fisher to a four-year, $48 million extension through 2021.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal includes $40 million guaranteed. The extension will be tacked onto the over $15 million he was scheduled to make in the next two years. It is a massive deal for a player who was not guaranteed to have his fifth-year option picked up in May. Fisher did show better after being moved back to left tackle midway through last season, but he was still league average at best. The Chiefs better hope he takes a big step forward or this deal could end up looking like a mistake.

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher said his career is "on a steady incline."

"I’m looking to pick up where I left off (last year), continue to grow and stay on a steady rise throughout my career," he continued. Fisher showed well after switching back to left tackle midway through last year, but he is still an average-at-best NFL starter. Even after exercising his fifth-year option, the Chiefs could move on if Fisher does not show continued improvement this season.

Chiefs exercised LT Eric Fisher's fifth-year option for 2017.

The option is worth $11.9 million. Despite being the No. 1 overall pick in 2013, it was not a slam dunk decision for the Chiefs to activate Fisher's option. Fisher has struggled throughout his career and performed only marginally better when moved from right to left tackle last season. It is not a given he ever develops into an above-average starter. With the option guaranteed for injury only, it is still possible Fisher is not with Kansas City in 2017.

Chiefs GM John Dorsey has yet to decide whether to pick up LT Eric Fisher's fifth-year option.

Dorsey said his focus is on the draft, so he will deal with Fisher's option after. Fisher has struggled since being taken No. 1 overall in 2013, but he showed signs of life last season. Considering the option is guaranteed for injury only, it would be a mild surprise if the Chiefs did not pick it up.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid believes LT Eric Fisher has "gotten better every year," and made a "big jump" in 2015.

"I would expect it to be another jump this year," Reid added. The Chiefs must decide this spring whether Fisher is worthy of his fifth-year team option. Fisher has yet to be an asset in three years in the big leagues, but 2015 was his best season. The former No. 1 overall pick is still only 25. With the option guaranteed for injury only, it's a good bet the Chiefs will pick it up.

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher exited Week 12 against the Bills with a neck injury.

He's done for the day. Fisher was drilled in the side of the head before halftime. The former No. 1 overall pick has played better in his third season, but remains a below-average tackle. Donald Stephenson has replaced him.

Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (probable, ankle) will start Monday night against the Packers.

Fisher was active last week, but played two snaps. It's not necessarily an upgrade to Kansas City's line. Fisher's return will relegate Jah Reid to backup duties.
Sat, Sep 26, 2015 04:10:00 PM

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.
Thu, Sep 17, 2015 01:24:00 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.
Tue, Sep 15, 2015 01:01:00 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.
