Chiefs TE James O'Shaughnessy inactive, TE Brian Parker active for first time

The Kansas City Chiefs have an interesting name on the inactive list: James O'Shaughnessy. The rookie out of Illinois State has been the second / third tight end along with Demetrius Harris and has been active all season until now. This means that another tight end, Brian Parker, is active for this game.

Parker has not been active this year and was claimed after the preseason ended so we know pretty much nothing about him. In fact, I bet many of you didn't even realize he was on the team. I'm anxious to see what he can do.

Not playing, as expected, is G Ben Grubbs and DE Mike DeVito. I'm anxious to see how the Chiefs will handle the offensive line with Grubbs out. Will it be Zach Fulton over there? Jeff Allen? Laurent Duvernay-Tardif? There are some options.

Also as expected, WR Jeremy Maclin and LB Tamba Hali are active and will play.
