The Kansas City Chiefs have released their inactives for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. We didn't expect any surprises from the Chiefs inactive list but we've got a slight one -- QB Brodie Croyle is on the inactive list as the third quarterback. 

I'm not sure exactly why they did this or what it means. If they were involved in a blowout, I imagine they would want to send some backups in, particularly Croyle. This move doesn't make a ton of sense to me.

Here are the rest of the inactives: WR Quinten Lawrence, S Donald Washington, FB Mike Cox, S Reshard Langford, LB Charlie Anderson, C Rudy Niswanger and NT Anthony Toribio.

Lawrence is inactive again despite being promoted from the practice squad last week which makes you think the Chiefs were possibly worried about him being plucked from another team. 

So, barring injury, we won't see Croyle in mop-up duty today. There's your inactive surprise.

For the Raiders, the big name to remember is RB Darren McFadden, who is inactive today.
