The Kansas City Chiefs have released their list of inactive players for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. There are no surprises here.
Here are the #Chiefs inactives today against the #Lions:— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) September 29, 2019
WR Tyreek Hill
RB Damien Williams
OL Greg Senat
OL Eric Fisher
OL Nick Allegretti
OL Martinas Rankin
DL Khalen Saunders#KCvsDET
Tyreek Hill, Damien Williams and Eric Fisher were all listed as out in the week’s final injury report, so their presence on the inactive list is not s surprise. Nick Allegretti and Khalen Saunders will be inactive for their fourth consecutive week. New offensive linemen Martinas Rankin and Greg Senat still haven’t taken a snap with the team.
The inactive list for the Lions is more of a surprise.
#Lions inactive list looks brutal against the #Chiefs— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) September 29, 2019
It includes DL Mike Daniels, CB Darius Slay, WR Danny Amendola as OUT. While of course QB Matthew Stafford is dealing with a hip injury but will play through it.
In the final injury report, defensive lineman Mike Daniels was listed as out for the game. But cornerback Darius Slay — one of the team’s best defensive players — and veteran wide receiver Danny Amendola had both been listed as questionable. Neither will play against the Chiefs on Sunday.
To make matters worse for the Lions, quarterback Matthew Stafford — while active for the game — will be playing through pain from a hip injury he suffered this week.
