The Kansas City Chiefs released their first injury report for Pittsburgh Steelers week and it looks like a few of the guys that missed last week's game could be ready to roll on Sunday Night Football.

The Chiefs had three guys miss last week's game against the New England Patriots -- DE Glenn Dorsey, S Jon McGraw and LB Demorrio Williams. All three of those guys were full participants in practice which is a good sign entering the weekend.

The Chiefs also have a semi-surprise on the injury report -- G Ryan Lilja has already been ruled out. Lilja received a "heck of a shot", as Todd Haley called it, last week against the Patriots. He exited the game with a head injury and did not return. Haley was hopeful on Lilja's status on the Chiefs Kingdom Show on Tuesday night but apparently that hope was for naught. I imagine rookie Rodney Hudson starts in his place.

Notable names missing from the injury report include CB Brandon Flowers and CB Brandon Carr. Both guys played last week after being listed as questionable so it looks like they're good to go this week.
