It's not very often that the Kansas City Chiefs inactive report before the game is a good thing. This time around, it kind of is.
Right tackle Ryan O'Callaghan went down last week with an unspecified leg injury. He was out the rest of the week with Barry Richardson taking snaps behind him. Though O'Callaghan isn't an elite right tackle by any means, he's still the best option so going to the backup would have been bad news for a line that's not very deep.
The good news: O'Callaghan is active this evening. We'll see whether he actually plays after kickoff but, for now, the fact that he's active has to be considered good news that his injury likely isn't long-term.
The other two inactives are guard Darryl Harris and defensive back Maurice Leggett. Harris has been injured for several weeks with an unspecified injury. Leggett went down with what looked like a serious neck injury last week but the long-term prognosis on him is positive.
Brodie Croyle wasn't throwing with the quarterbacks earlier in pre-game so we'll see if he's a go or not.
Third preseason game and only two inactives -- that's not a bad start for the Chiefs.
