Chiefs rule two starters out of Chargers game; Tamba Hali, Sean Smith will play

The Kansas City Chiefs head into Sunday's San Diego Chargers game with a couple of starters missing. The Chiefs final injury report lists G Ben Grubbs and DE Allen Bailey as out for the game. This will be the third straight missed game for Grubbs, whose season appears to be in question, and the second straight missed game for Bailey. The Chiefs will likely roll with Jeff Allen at LG in place of Grubbs and the combo of Jaye Howard and Mike DeVito to replace Bailey along the defensive line.

Questionable is S Tyvon Branch and LB Ramik Wilson. Branch had an MRI done on an injured foot after last week's game which had me worried for a little bit. Looks like he will be good this season though.

LB Tamba Hali and CB Sean Smith are both probable. Hali didn't practice on Wednesday or Friday as the Chiefs continue to manage his knee which has bothered him all year.
