Chiefs vs. Cardinals: WR Dexter McCluster Out Again

The Kansas City Chiefs are not at full health against the Arizona Cardinals today. The Chiefs have already ruled out two players -- TE Tony Moeaki and S Jon McGraw -- and have listed five others as questionable. The inactive report has the names of the eight players that are not playing today.

Inactives: WR Dexter McCluster, CB Jackie Bates, FB Mike Cox, S Jon McGraw, LB Charlie Anderson, LB Justin Cole, TE Tony Moeaki and NT Anthony Toribio.

That's about what we expected with McCluster as the only question mark.

Here are three things to know about the injury report:

Dexter McCluster is gone again. This is the fourth consecutive game he's missed and the Chiefs offense will have to find a way to make big plays without him.

Both guards are playing. No need for reserve G Jon Asamoah today. Both Waters and Lilja are active. Even if one of them goes down, Asamoah can handle the duties. This position isn't of high concern.
