The Kansas City Chiefs have released their inactive list for tonight's game against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football. The biggest news is that Sammy Watkins is not on the list.

Other than the absence of Watkins -- who missed plenty of practice time this week, and was listed as questionable for the game -- this is pretty much the list we would expect to see.

The Chiefs just recently promoted Gehrig Dieter to the active roster -- probably as a hedge against the possibility Watkins would be unable to play -- but since Watkins is suiting up tonight, Dieter is out.

The Chiefs have also tweeted that Watkins will start tonight's game.
