Raiders vs Chiefs injury report: Vance Walker not practicing, Justin Houston returns for Chiefs

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The first injury report for the week is out and it features a starting linemen for both teams not practicing. For the Raiders, it's Vance Walker who was not practicing and the Chiefs were without starting left tackle Branden Albert.

Walker suffered a concussion against the Jets last week. As we know, concussions can be tricky. Last week Rashad Jennings was out with a concussion despite practicing all week. So, with Walker missing practice, the outlook is not good. He was replaced in the lineup by rookie Stacy McGee.

Also not practicing for the Raiders once again was running backs Darren McFadden and Jeremy Stewart. Rashad Jennings returned to practice full after being limited last week and missing the game Sunday against the Jets.

Mike Brisiel and Denarius Moore also returned to practice. Brisiel missed last week with lower leg injuries and Moore had missed the past three weeks with a shoulder injury.

For the Chiefs, it was Branden Albert who was still out with a knee injury. He suffered the knee injury in the Chiefs' week 12 loss to the Broncos and missed their game last week. He was replaced at left tackle by Donald Stephenson.

Justin Houston had missed the past couple weeks for the Chiefs with an elbow injury. He returned to practice this week and was officially limited. He was wearing a brace on the elbow.
