Albert has elbow injury

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

Chiefs rookie left tackle Branden Albert was carted off the field during the Chiefs' game with the Broncos with an apparent hyperextended elbow.

He has been replaced by Herb Taylor. Albert was the No. 15 overall draft pick out of Virginia.

The Chiefs have been very pleased with Albert's development. He missed all of the preseason with a foot injury, but has played well in the Chiefs' first three regular-season games.
