Rookie tackle Eric Fisher, selected by the Chiefs with the first overall pick in the NFL Draft last month, was at right tackle today for the beginning of a three-day rookie camp at their Truman Sports Complex practice facility.
“He’ll be in here Monday,” coach Andy Reid said of Albert. “Branden will play the left side for right now and Eric will play the right side. I think that gives you two pretty good bookends right there. We also know we have Donald Stephenson, who is also a good football player.”
“He (Albert) is very eager to get going. He’s very excited.”
Following the conclusion of the rookie camp, the Chiefs resume full-squad practice on Tuesday.
After the sides were unable to agree on terms of a long-term contract, the Chiefs designated Albert as their franchise player, effectively preventing him from testing the free-agent market. Albert soon signed the Chiefs’ one-year contract offer worth $9.83 million but has stayed away from the team’s voluntary offseason conditioning program that began April 1.
He also was absent for last month’s full-squad mini-camp.
