The Kansas City Chiefs injury report for the Minnesota Vikings game has been released and Kansas City will be missing a pair of starters (at least). NT Dontari Poe and LB Josh Mauga have both been ruled out of the game. Mauga missed last week too while Poe has a high ankle sprain and could miss multiple weeks.

The Chiefs also listed LB Tamba Hali as questionable with a knee injury but Andy Reid indicated that he should be good to go if the swelling goes down. I wouldn't be surprised if the Chiefs looked more to Dee Ford in this game given he got Tamba's reps in practice on Thursday and Friday. Besides, Ford needs to play more at some point.

The Chiefs had four players listed as probable: TE Brian Parker, TE Travis Kelce, TE James O'Shaughnessy and CB Jamell Fleming. They should all be ready to play.

Meanwhile in Minnesota, the Vikings have listed two receivers - Mike Wallace and Jarius Wright - as probable while another receiver, Charles Johnson, is questionable. Given that the Bears were missing their top three receivers last week and still beat the Chiefs, I'm not sure how much those injuries matter.
