Inactives: Branden Albert, Anthony Fasano, Justin Houston, Dexter McCluster Declared Out

Injuries have forced Kansas City Chiefs starters Branden Albert, Anthony Fasano, Justin Houston, and Dexter McCluster to the inactive list. Donald Stephenson will start for Albert, Sean McGrath for Fasano, and Frank Zombo for Houston. Additionally, Geoff Schwartz will start at right guard for Jon Asamoah for the fourth-straight week. McCluster is a late add to the inactive list as it was discovered mid-week that he had a lacerated foot that had become infected. He is being held back today out of precaution.  

McCluster had nearly 200 return yards and a touchdown last week against Washington. It is unknown who will return punts but Chad Hall was re-signed earlier this week. He has experience returning punts.  

Kansas City’s other in actives are no surprise: Tyler Bray, Rishaw Johnson, and Eric Kush.

As for the Oakland Raiders, running back Darren McFadden, guard Andre Gurode, defensive lineman Vance Walker, running back Jeremy Stewart, cornerback Chance Casey, offensive lineman Lamar Mady and receiver Brice Butler are all in active.

 

While McFadden, Gurode, and Walker are all big hits to Oakland, they do return wide receiver Denarious Moore and will have an active Rashad Jennings. Moore has missed the last three weeks with a shoulder injury while Jennings was listed on the injury report all week as questionable.
