The Kansas City Chiefs have released their list of inactive players for their divisional playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins — who suffered a foot injury against the Cleveland Browns in Week 9, and saw only a few snaps against the Los Angeles Rams two weeks later — is active for the game. Eric Berry and Spencer Ware are both inactive.

Watkins, Ware and Berry were all limited in practice on Thursday, and listed as questionable on the final injury report of the week. Dorian O’Daniel did not practice for the whole week, and was listed as doubtful for the game.

Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin being inactive could suggest that the Chiefs expect Watkins will be able to play a significant number of snaps. Benjamin did not appear on the Chiefs injury report this week.

Here is the Colts inactive list for the game.

Wide receiver Ryan Grant and defensive lineman Tyquan Lewis had both been listed as out for the game, so their presence on the inactive list is not surprising. Safety Malik Hooker had been listed as questionable. Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton — who has a lingering ankle injury — didn’t practice all week, but has nonetheless been expected to play all along. He is active for the game against the Chiefs.
