Chiefs-Ravens: Justin Houston, Jeff Allen, De'Anthony Thomas will not play

The Kansas City Chiefs have ruled out a few players for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. The following players will not play vs. the Ravens:

QB Aaron Murray, WR De'Anthony Thomas, S Husain Abdullah, LB Justin Houston, OL Jeff Allen, DL David King and DE Rakeem Nunez-Roches.

The question here was whether Allen would be ready and he's not. I'm guessing this means Zach Fulton will be at left guard. The Chiefs line has been doing well enough but Allen has been a key part of that so we'll have to keep an eye on that today.

Dee Ford will make his third consecutive start for Justin Houston. The Chiefs need another big game from Ford.

I'll be interested to see who replaces DAT at punt returner this week. It has been Frankie Hammond but he put a couple on the ground last week.

Abdullah's absence means we're likely to to see more Tyvon Branch again. He was named player of the week two weeks ago.
