Chiefs notebook |Albert will be game-time decision
Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert, who suffered a sprained ankle two weeks ago and missed last week’s win at Washington, will be evaluated again Sunday morning before coaches decide whether to play him against San Diego.

Albert returned to practice in a limited role Friday, after spending the first two practice days walking around the rehab field.

“It’s probably going to go down to the wire with him,” coach Todd Haley said.

Albert was listed on Friday’s injury report as questionable. If Albert can’t play, Wade Smith probably would start, and Barry Richardson also would be available.

Stretch of highway renamed for Lamar

A section of Interstate 435 near Arrowhead Stadium will be named in honor of Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt. The stretch of road will be designated the “Lamar Hunt Memorial Highway” and will be announced before Sunday’s game.

Highway signs will be placed on the I-435 northbound lanes near the Stadium Drive/Raytown Road exit and on the southbound lanes near the 48th Street and Worlds of Fun exit.

Other injuries

Chiefs right tackle Ryan O’Callaghan (shoulder), free safety Jarrad Page (shoulder) and left guard Brian Waters (ankle) were full participants in Friday’s practice. All are listed as probable.

For San Diego, center Nick Hardwick (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game. Linebacker Kevin Burnett (ankle) is doubtful, wide receiver Buster Davis (illness) and defensive end Travis Johnson (groin) are questionable, and linebacker Shawne "roidman" Merriman (foot) is probable.

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie (knee) was a limited participant Friday and was listed as questionable.
