Here are the Chiefs’ inactives for today’s game:— Matt McMullen (@KCChiefs_Matt) September 20, 2020
CB Charvarius Ward
DE Demone Harris
DE Alex Okafor
OL Yasir Durant
TE Ricky Seals-Jones
On Friday’s final injury report, the Chiefs had already listed defensive end Alex Okafor (hamstring), cornerback Charvarius Ward (hand) and defensive tackle Khalen Saunders as out for this game. Saunders was placed on injured reserve on Saturday; Braxton Hoyett was promoted from the practice squad to take his place.
This means that defensive end Demone Harris, offensive lineman Yasir Durant and tight end Ricky Seals-Jones are all healthy scratches for the game.
Center Austin Reiter, defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi, left guard Kelechi Osemele, safety Juan Thornhill and running back Darrel Williams — all of whom received treatment for injuries during the past week, but practiced fully — will be suited up at kickoff.
Unlike last week, rookie cornerback BoPete Keyes and veteran defensive end Taco Charlton will be active help make up for the injuries to Ward and Okafor.
For the Chargers, running back Justin Jacks had been listed as doubtful on Friday. He will not be active for the game. Tight end Donald Parham Jr. was ill during the week, but was a full participant in Friday’s practice. He will also miss the game. Starting center Mike Pouncey went on injured reserve this week.
Defensive end Joey Bosa, guard Trai Turner, cornerback Casey Hayward Jr. and wide receiver Mike Williams were all treated for injuries this week, but will be active on Sunday.
