Eric Fisher returns to Chiefs practice

Jamie Squire

After missing practice Sunday, Fisher is back in action for Kansas City.

The No. 1 overall pick from April's NFL Draft is back on the field for the Kansas City Chiefs, according to Adam Teicher.

After missing a day of practice with an injury to his thumb/shoulder, Eric Fisher is once again manning the right tackle spot in Monday's practice. Fisher played a tad over one quarter in the first preseason game against the New Orleans Saints on Friday night and was reportedly hurting with a finger injury when he exited the game.

However, it was later said he also had a little bit of a shoulder problem, keeping him away from the action when the Chiefs returned to practice on Sunday.

Fisher is a major part of Kansas City's rebuilding plan in year one under new head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey. Playing across from left tackle Branden Albert, the Chiefs may have one of the stronger offensive lines in the NFL.
