Out: S Sanders Commings, LB Justin Houston
Both are officially OUT for the game. Houston has the dislocated elbow, It's been reported he could miss multiple weeks with the injury. The Chiefs trainer said he is "truly week-to-week". Frank Zombo will be the pass rusher in his place (assuming Tamba Hali can go, which not necessarily a safe assumption). Commings has a shoulder injury and didn't practice all week.
Questionable: G Jon Asamoah, DE Mike DeVito, OT Eric Fisher, LB Tamba Hali
These are four starters so they're all obviously important. Hali is at the top of the list. He has a sprained ankle. Can he play? That's arguably the biggest question entering this game. He says he plans on playing so I'm hoping he does. With Houston already out, the Chiefs need Tamba badly.
Asamoah, DeVito and Fisher all missed time last week with injuries. Asamoah and Fisher were limited participants in practice so it would appear they have a shot. DeVito did not practice on Wednesday or Friday. However, missing Friday's practice was for personal reasons, according to Andy Reid, and they're "all positive". So maybe he can go on Sunday?
Probable: G Jeff Allen, DE Mike Catapano, DE Tyson Jackson, FB Anthony Sherman
All four of these players should play. Three of them are starters so that's good.
