The Kansas City Chiefs have released their inactives for today's game against the Green Bay Packers and there are several notables on the list.

QB Tyler Palko, who started the last four games, is inactive. That means QB Kyle Orton and QB Ricky Stanzi are your two active quarterbacks today (and Orton will start). That's a good sign that the Chiefs don't think Orton's finger will be a big problem today.

S Jon McGraw was doubtful entering the game and he's been ruled out, which isn't a big surprise with his high ankle sprain.

The rest of the Chiefs inactives look familiar: OT David Mims, WR Jerheme Urban, TE Jake O'Connell, DE Brandon Bair and NT Jerrell Powe.

For the Packers, the big name that's out today is RB James Starks, whose status was up in the air entering this game. RB Ryan Grant will see an increased role with Starks out. WR Greg Jennings is the other big name out for the Packers today but we knew he'd be missing this one.

The rest of the Packers inactives include QB Graham Harrell, RB Brandon Saine, LB Desmond Bishop, OT Chad Clifton and DE Ryan Pickett.
