Chiefs get back to practice following preseason opener with injured No. 1 overall pick Fisher

The Kansas City Chiefs returned to practice on Sunday without right tackle Eric Fisher, the No. 1 overall pick who hurt his right shoulder in their preseason opener.

Fisher also hurt his left thumb in Friday night's game in New Orleans, briefly leaving the sideline to get it taped up. But coach Andy Reid said after the team returned to training camp that Fisher missed practice because of a separate shoulder injury.

Reid said it was a muscle injury and didn't expect Fisher to be out long.

The Chiefs offense struggled throughout the workout at Missouri Western as they got ready to play their first home preseason game Friday night against San Francisco. On several occasions, the group didn't even get a play off before a whistle was blown.
