Here are the #Chiefs’ official inactives tonight vs. Seahawks...some shakeups in the secondary.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) December 23, 2018
The big name here is Ron Parker. There has been no report of any kind of injury to Parker, so this can only be characterized as a healthy scratch. This either means we’re going to see a healthy dose of Eric Berry against the Seahawks (see what I did there?) or possibly that Parker is in the doghouse. Or... both. In any case, Parker won’t be playing against Seattle.
Kendall Fuller is a bit of surprise. We knew that he had been held back from (or limited in) practice in the past week after having surgery on his wrist, but we expected him to be playing in a cast. Obviously that’s not going to happen.
Sammy Watkins and Spencer Ware are not big surprises. Neither were expected to play. Kahlil McKenzie, Jimmy Murray and Deon Yelder (not Telder) are typical scratches from the game day roster.
Aside from Berry, four other Chiefs were all on this week’s injury report: Mitchell Schwartz, Cam Erving, Tyreek Hill and Derrick Nnadi. All practiced fully on Friday, and are active for tonight’s game.
We also have the inactive list for the Seahawks.

The Seahawks had a lot of players on their injury report this week. Most will be are active tonight.
Tedric Thompson had already been designated out for this game, so his being inactive is not a surprise. Rashaad Penny had been limited in practice this week, so he is not a surprise, either. Germain Ifedi did not appear on the injury report until Friday, when he was designated as questionable with a groin injury.
D.J. Fluker, Bradley McDougald, Jarran Reed, Shaquill Griffin and Tyler Ott were all listed as questionable on Friday, but will play tonight — as will K.J. Wright, who had been limited in practice earlier this week.
