Coming off a big win over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will head north to face the Cleveland Browns but aren't in good shape injury-wise after Thursday's practice, especially in the defensive secondary.
Safety Eric Berry had a setback regarding his hand injury and an illness after he sat out of practice Thursday. He was a limited participant on Wednesday. Cornerback Brandon Flowers was sidelined for the second straight day with a hamstring injury. Defensive back Abram Elam is still dealing with a quad injury and was out of practice for the second day in a row. Linebacker Derrick Johnson continues to deal with a hamstring injury and sat out of practice again.
Offensively, the Chiefs' problems are on the line. Guard Ryan Lilja sat out of practice again with a knee injury. Tackle Branden Albert was limited with a back injury Wednesday, though the Chiefs' official site didn't disclose his level of participation in practice Thursday. Lineman Jeff Allen was a full participant after sitting out Wednesday with an illness.
