Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Eric Fisher won't play in Super Bowl LV after suffering a torn Achilles in Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Buffalo Bills, head coach Andy Reid announced Monday, according to team reporter Matt McMullen.

Fisher was quickly ruled out after going down while pass protecting in the fourth quarter.

Mike Remmers shifted from right tackle to left tackle after Fisher departed, while Andrew Wylie moved to right tackle, and Stefen Wisniewski shuffled to right guard.

Kansas City suffered a number of injuries along its offensive line this season, losing Mitchell Schwartz and Kelechi Osemele for extended periods. Starting guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif also opted out of the campaign in July.

Fisher started 15 of 16 games in 2020 and has been a staple on the Chiefs' blocking unit since being selected first overall in the 2013 draft.

The 30-year-old made his second Pro Bowl in three years this season.
