KC Chiefs Inactives: Jamaal Charles Out Again For Week 2


KC Chiefs inactives are out for week two, and the biggest name includes Jamaal Charles. Charles will be missing his second straight week this season.

The Kansas City Chiefs will be playing their first road game of the season, and are in Houston for their third match-up with the Texans in the last year. Kansas City has won the last two games, including a 30-0 shellacking of the Texans in the playoffs.

Needless to say, Houston has more than likely had this game circled on their calendar since the schedules were announced in April. That city probably hates Kansas City for all of the big losses our town handed them last year.

Other inactive players this week for Kansas City are Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Parker Ehinger, and De’Anthony Thomas. The Chiefs will have both of their starting guards out for this game, so Zach Fulton and Jah Reid are the next men up.

De’Anthony Thomas is once again inactive as well, making me regret writing that article about the Chiefs needing to keep him.

Here is the full list of KC Chiefs inactives and Houston Texans inactives:

Obviously, J.J. Watt is not listed, and the former Wisconsin stud is a go in this game. Watt got owned by Eric Fisher in the playoff game, and a lot of us remember when Fisher gave Watt a little shove after he was already down. This will be a fun match-up to watch, and let’s hope Fish wins again.

Duane Brown is inactive for the Texans too, which gives the Chiefs defense an edge. Brown is a talented tackle, so any good linemen off that o-line is a win for Kansas City.

Brian Cushing will miss this week’s game too, which is another huge positive for the Kansas City Chiefs. Watt being out there is scary enough, but the Texans also have Whitney Mercilus and former first overall pick Jadeveon Clowney to make Alex Smith‘s life a living hell.

The only big question mark to me is why De’Anthony Thomas is still listed as inactive. Is it because he’s injured or is he on the inactives list because the team already has Tyreek Hill? If the latter, then why was he kept on the roster over KeiVarae Russell, who the team parted ways with a few days ago?

This could be a tough game for the Kansas City Chiefs. They’re on the road against a team who loathes them, and we’re unsure of what team we’re going to see this week. Will it be the sloppy squad we saw in the first half last week, or the dominate team we saw in the second half that completed the biggest comeback in franchise history? I’m obviously hoping for option two.
