Three Chiefs Questionable for Sunday's Game Against the Ravens

Via Josh Looney, here are the questionables for Sunday: Matt Cassel, Brandon Flowers, Terrance Copper

I just told you a few minutes ago that Todd Haley confirmed that Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.  That was no surprise as Haley had already indicated earlier in the week that would be the case.

It is, however, a little surprising to see Brandon Flowers listed as "questionable" for Sunday's game.  As you all know, he hurt his shoulder in the third preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks.  Of course, there's been no talk of his injury by the Chiefs coaching staff.

The "questionable" designation means he has a 50-50 chance of playing.  I would have guessed he would have been "probable" which means it's a near certainty he'll be on the field.

Maurice Leggett played in Flowers' place for the remainder of the Seahawks game.  Donald Washington took his spot in the final preseason game against the Rams.  I would guess that Washington would take his spot if he were unable to go.  

But, by all indications, including from Flowers himself, he'll be out there on Sunday.  

We're not sure what Terrance Copper did.  He was not listed on Wednesday's injury report.  On Thursday, however, he was "limited in participation" with a hamstring injury.  His status for Sunday is unknown.

Jackie Battle was listed on Wednesday's report as a limited participant due to an illness.  On Thursday, he was ugpraded to a full participant and he does not appear on the final injury report.

Here's how the Ravens injury report is shaking out:

Doubtful - TE L.J. Smith
Questionable - LB Dannell Ellerbe
Probable - LB Brendon Ayanbadejo, DE Haloti Ngata

Smith and Ellerbe probably won't play.
