Inactives: Chiefs Missing Three Starters

A week after being the healthiest they have ever been, the Chiefs list three starters on the inactive list for their game against San Diego this afternoon.

The loss of Fisher and Asamoah from the offensive line means Donald Stephenson and Geoff Schwartz will be starting at right tackle and right guard, respectively. Both have started games this season and played well, but the lack of offensive line cohesion this season has caused problems with run blocking and pass protection this season.

Allen Bailey will start in place of DeVito at defensive end. This is a big blow to the Chiefs run defense, but may boost KC’s pass rush. San Diego is a pass-heavy team so the Chiefs may have dodged a bullet there. However, Ryan Mathews can be a very good running back at times.

Dunta Robinson is a healthy inactive again this week, losing his spot to rookie Sanders Commings.

Tyler Bray and Nico Johnson are not surprises to be inactive.

Here are the inactives for the San Diego Chargers:

Eddie Royals has been listed with an injury all week but he does make the active roster for the Chargers. There is a chance he does not see much action today, however.
