Chiefs vs. Chargers: Antonio Gates Out; Kendrick Lewis Active

The Kansas City Chiefs have released their inactives and there aren't many surprises. Three players were on the injury report this week -- QB Matt Cassel, S Donald Washington and S Kendrick Lewis. Of those three only Lewis is active.

Here's the full inactive list for KC: QB Matt Cassel, CB Mike Richardson, S Donald Washington, FB Tim Castille, LB Corey Mays, LB Charlie Anderson, C Rudy Niswanger and NT Anthony Toribio.

The big name of course for the Chiefs is Cassel, who had an appendectomy on Wednesday. It's Brodie Croyle time.

The San Diego Chargers have a pretty significant inactive as well -- TE Antonio Gates. He has lit the Chiefs up plenty of times so losing him is a huge blow to the Chargers.

Two other notable actives for San Diego include WR Vincent Jackson and RB Darren Sproles. Jackson has been in for only a couple of plays all season so he may be rusty.

There are some pretty important pieces missing for both sides.
