The Kansas City Chiefs have released their list of inactive players for the Monday Night Football matchup with the Baltimore Ravens.
Here are the Chiefs’ inactives tonight vs. Baltimore:— Matt McMullen (@KCChiefs_Matt) September 28, 2020
CB BoPete Keyes
DE Demone Harris
DE Alex Okafor
OG Andrew Wylie
TE Ricky Seals-Jones
The big surprise here is right guard Andrew Wylie, who did not appear on any of this week’s injury reports. However, according to the Kansas City Star, Wylie appeared at the stadium sick, and was headed for the hospital.
Chiefs G Andrew Wylie showed up at the stadium this evening feeling sick, I'm told. He was then further evaluated and will be taken to the hospital.— Herbie Teope (@HerbieTeope) September 28, 2020
ESPN’s Adam Schefter then found another tidbit about Wylie’s situation.
Chiefs’ starting guard Andrew Wylie is inactive tonight after the team found out at about 5 pm that he felt sick and needed to go to the hospital for what the team now believes is appendicitis, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 28, 2020
This week’s edition of the Chiefs’ unofficial depth chart listed undrafted rookie Yasir Durant behind Wylie at right guard, but it wouldn’t be prudent to bet against veteran offensive lineman Mike Remmers sliding into that spot.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (concussion) cornerback Charvarius Ward (hand) and linebacker Dorian O’Daniel were all listed as questionable on Saturday’s final injury report, but all three will be active for the game.
After protecting defensive back Chris Lammons and running back DeAndre Washington on their practice squad earlier this week, the Chiefs decided to not to elevate any of their practice squad players for the game.
Defensive end Alex Okafor had already been ruled out with a hamstring injury. He missed all of this week’s practices. The rest of the team’s inactive players are healthy scratches.
The Ravens have also released their inactive players for Monday night.
