KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If Eric Fisher doesn't start at right tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night against the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium, it's a coaching decision and not an injury situation.
The Chiefs issued their final injury report of the week and all 14 players on the list, including Fisher, are likely to be available to play against the Broncos.
So Fisher's sprained ankle is well enough to allow him to play. That gives Andy Reid and his staff a decision whether they want to put him back into the lineup or stick with the recently signed Jah Reid, who started last week's game against the Houston Texans.
The situation is complicated by the situation regarding another right tackle candidate, Jeff Allen. Allen, who sprained his knee early in the preseason and hasn't played since, is also listed on the injury report as probable for Sunday's game.
The Chiefs will deactivate seven players 90 minutes before kickoff on Thursday. Either Allen, Fisher or Reid could be one of them. The Chiefs had only seven linemen, including Fisher, in uniform for last week's game.
Also listed as probable to play for the Chiefs on Thursday: tight ends Travis Kelce (hip) and Demetrius Harris (foot), wide receivers Jeremy Maclin (back), Albert Wilson (shoulder), De'Anthony Thomas (calf) and Jason Avant (hip), running back Charcandrick West (Achilles), defensive lineman Dontari Poe (back), linebackers Tamba Hali (neck), Josh Mauga (Achilles) and D.J. AlexanderHusain Abdullah (quad).
