QB Alex Smith has a shoulder strain, per Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid.
First of all, as of right now he is expected to be fine for Week 9. This is definitely a situation to keep your eye on though. Smith will likely sit out or earn a "limited" tag on Wednesday before trying to ramp up on Thursday. The injured was sustained during the first half of Sunday's game and he played through which is a good sign. For now, you should just take Andy Reid at his word that Smith will be fine, but back-up plans should be readied. Smith's status will be updated no later than Wednesday.
