Eric Fisher Suffers Torn Achilles vs. Bills

The Chiefs were able to cruise to an easy victory vs. the Bills on Sunday, which means they will be headed to the Super Bowl for the second straight year. That said, they will be doing it without their starting left tackle. Fisher left Sunday’s game with an injury, and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that he suffered a torn Achilles. That means he will not suit up for the Super Bowl and faces a lengthy recovery process.

With Fisher out of the lineup, Mike Remmers moved to left tackle, Stefen Wisniewski slid over to right guard, and Andrew Wylie went to right tackle. There is a chance that Mitchell Schwartz will return from Injured Reserve for the Super Bowl, which would give them a huge boost on the offensive line. However, that is far from a guarantee.

Fisher finished the year with a Pro Football Focus grade of 80.7, which ranked 14th among offensive lineman. The Chiefs are currently listed as three-point favorites over the Buccaneers on FanDuel Sportsbook.
