Branden Albert, Dunta Robinson will return for Chiefs vs. Eagles

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The Chiefs will be near full strength even on a short week.

The Kansas City Chiefs face a short week as they prepare to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night. The good news is that they will be mostly healthy with word that left tackle Branden Albert will be ready to play after an injury in Week 2. In addition, cornerback Dunta Robinson will return to the team after attending to a personal matter.

Albert sprained his shoulder in the win against the Dallas Cowboys at Arrowhead on Sunday, and it was considered a possibility that he could be out for the Eagles game. Yet Andy Reid said that won't be the case on Thursday, according to Adam Teicher. That's good news for a team that relies heavily on running back Jamaal Charles to move the chains.

The same can be said for Robinson's return to the secondary. The Chiefs were thin at cornerback without him as Robinson attended to family matters after the hospitalization of his cousin.

The Chiefs and Eagles face off at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Thursday night.
