Kansas City Chiefs starting left tackle Eric Fisher is scheduled for surgery Thursday for a core muscle injury, the team announced Wednesday.

Fisher suffered the injury Friday in practice, was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders and played only the first series before leaving the game. Cam Erving came in as his replacement.

Fisher, 28, underwent further testing and was set for surgery in Philadelphia with Dr. William Meyers. There was no immediate timetable for Fisher’s return.

Fisher, the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, has spent his entire career with the Chiefs, starting 92 of his 96 games played, and earning Pro Bowl honors in 2018.

The Chiefs (2-0) have their home opener Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens (2-0).
