The Kansas City Chiefs have released their list of inactive players for Thursday night’s game against the Denver Broncos in Colorado, per old friend B.J. Kissel of Chief.com.
Here are the #Chiefs inactives for tonight’s game against the #Broncos:— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) October 17, 2019
WR Sammy Watkins
OL Eric Fisher
DL Chris Jones
OL Andrew Wylie
CB Kendall Fuller
RB Darwin Thompson
OL Greg Senat
All of these players except running back Darwin Thompson and offensive lineman Greg Senat had been listed out for the game in Wednesday’s final injury report.
But the biggest news may be that cornerback Bashaud Breeland — previously listed as questionable for the game — is active and will play against the Broncos.
According to the injury report on Wednesday, Breeland’s status was “not injury related.” Late on Wednesday afternoon, friend-of-the-site Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest reported that he had been listed as questionable for personal reasons, and would not fly to Denver with the team. Shortly after 5:00 pm Thursday, Derrick reported that Breeland had arrived in Denver independently, and would rejoin the team for the game.
Since cornerback Kendall Fuller — the nominal starting nicker corner — is out with an injury and cornerback Morris Claiborne has had no more than 30 snaps in any game since his suspension concluded after Week 4, Breeland’s availability for the game is welcome news for Chiefs fans.
Here is the Broncos inactive list:
