Justin HoustonThe Chiefs called left tackle Branden Albert’s hyperextended knee a “day-to-day situation” on Monday and it wasn’t feeling well enough two days later for Albert to participate in practice.

Albert was one of three key members of the Chiefs lineup who sat out the first practice of the week. Linebacker Justin Houston, who sat out last week’s loss to Denver after suffering a dislocated elbow, and tight end Anthony Fasano, recovering from both a concussion and a knee injury, joined him on the sideline.

It will probably be Friday at the earliest before we know anyone’s status for certain, but having any of Albert, Houston or Fasano will be a boost as Kansas City tries to halt its losing streak at three games.
