Brandon Flowers injury: Chiefs CB questionable vs. Eagles

Mike Ehrmann

Brandon Flowers is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Eagles, potentially leaving the Chiefs' secondary without its best player against a high-powered offense.

Brandon Flowers is listed as questionable on the Kansas City Chiefs' final injury report before Thursday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to ESPN's Adam Teicher. Flowers is dealing with inflammation in his knee that kept him out of practice Monday and limited him Tuesday.

Joel Thorman at Chiefs blog Arrowhead Pride analyzed the Chiefs' injury report and predicted that Flowers will suit up against the Eagles. If that prediction doesn't hold, however, the Chiefs could have big trouble on their hands. Chip Kelly's offense has been a big success through the first two weeks of the NFL season, and DeSean Jackson is coming off a nine-reception, 193-yard performance against the San Diego Chargers.

Flowers has established himself as perhaps one of the league's elite corners in recent years. He was named an alternate for the 2013 Pro Bowl in Honolulu. He already has 14 tackles and an interception this season for a Chiefs defense that has given up no more than 16 points so far this season. Last week, the secondary held Tony Romo relatively in check, giving up 298 yards and just one touchdown through the air.
