The Kansas City Chiefs have released their inactives list for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. As reports early Sunday morning indicated, quarterback Patrick Mahomes will not suit up for the game. We expect Matt Moore to start in his place — with Chad Henne as his backup.
Here are the #Chiefs inactives today:— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) November 3, 2019
QB Patrick Mahomes
CB Kendall Fuller
RB Darwin Thompson
DE Frank Clark
OL Eric Fisher
OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
DE Alex Okafor
Mahomes and cornerback Kendall Fuller were limited in practice all week. Both were listed as questionable in the week’s final injury report. Frank Clark’s neck injury still seems to be an issue. He didn’t practice on Wednesday and Thursday — and was listed as questionable after being a limited participant in practice on Friday — before being made inactive for this game.
Right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, left tackle Eric Fisher and defensive end Alex Okafor had all been ruled out on Friday.
But star defensive tackle Chris Jones — also questionable on Friday, but a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday — will be back on the field.
Rookie running back Darwin Thompson is the only healthy Chiefs player who will be inactive for the game.
Meanwhile, the Vikings have also released their inactives list.
The Vikings only listed one player as questionable on Friday’s injury report: wide receiver Adam Thielen. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, he will on the field opposite Stefon Diggs.
