Chiefs vs. Texans: Eric Fisher and Dontari Poe active, Jeff Allen is inactive

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs inactives for the Houston Texans game has been released and Eric Fisher is not listed, which means he is ACTIVE for this game. But will he start? That's what we're waiting on following a Houston Chronicle report that Fisher is concerned about his ankle and Jah Reid will start at right tackle in his place.

Also of note is that Dontari Poe is active for the game. That's still hard to believe considering he had back surgery less than two months ago.

Here are the Chiefs inactives for the game:

QB Aaron Murray, CB Steven Nelson, CB Marcus Cooper, OL Jeff Allen, TE Brain Parker, WR Frankie Hammond, DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches

The other notable thing here is that Jeff Allen is inactive. He was the other tackle option for the Chiefs. But if Fisher is ready to play then the Chiefs will have an extra tackle.
