AND ERIC BERRY IS ACTIVE FOR THE GAME!
We already expected Sammy Watkins and Spencer Ware and Cam Erving to be inactive tonight, so no big surprise there. The presence of Gehrig Dieter on the inactives list could signify two different things — that the Chiefs are confident Tyreek Hill will be a full go tonight, and that recently-signed Kelvin Benjamin can be a contributor. Tanoh Kpassagnon being inactive is a bit of a surprise, too. Deon Yelder and Kahlil McKenzie round out the list.
For the Chargers, both the primary and backup running backs — Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler — are inactive for the game. This was pretty much as expected, too.

Without Gordon and Ekeler, the Chargers will be likely be starting Justin Jackson at running back.
