Eric Fisher Injury: Updates on Chiefs Star's Head
Eric Fisher's career with the Kansas City Chiefs was already off to a shaky start after three games. It hit another bump in the road in Week 4 against the New York Giants, as the top overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft had to leave the game with a head injury.
From Dan Graziano of ESPN:
Chiefs rookie tackle Eric Fisher questionable to return. Head injury. NYG pass rush offering no indication that he was gone.— Dan Graziano (@DanGrazianoESPN) September 29, 2013
Fisher will play in Week 6 vs. Oakland.
Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com broke down some of Fisher's struggles after the Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3:
Fisher, playing right tackle, was called for holding twice during the Chiefs' 26-16 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on "Thursday Night Football." He appeared to give up at least two sacks. Pro Football Focus had him down for five total pressures, including a few plays where Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox almost instantly beat him off the line of scrimmage. We noticed the Chiefs sliding their protection toward Fisher's side to help.
Mitigating factors help explain Fisher's struggles. He's playing a new position, after lining up at left tackle in college. Central Michigan to the NFL has been a big step. And, well, he's a rookie.
Rosenthal went so far to say that Fisher's play has been so poor, he likely would have been benched were he not such a high draft pick. His struggles have been overshadowed by the Chiefs' 3-0 start, but if Kansas City begins losing games, you can be sure the pressure will increase on the rookie.
Still, the loss for Fisher beyond this week would be felt in Kansas City. If Fisher indeed sustained a concussion, he could potentially be out for at least the team's Week 5 game against the Tennessee Titans.
He may not be playing well, but the Chiefs will want their first-round investment to continue to learn on the job. That's hard to do from the sideline.
