Chiefs Inactives vs Chargers

Posted Nov 1, 2012

SAN DIEGO – The Kansas City Chiefs will be without starting cornerback Stanford Routt in Thursday night’s primetime matchup against the San Diego Chargers.

Routt was ruled out against the Chargers after he suffered a hamstring injury during Tuesday’s practice. He was listed as limited in Wednesday’s session and was officially in the questionable category leading up to the game. Javier Arenas will start in his place alongside Brandon Flowers.

The Chiefs will get some help along the defensive front as starting defensive end Glenn Dorsey (calf) is active and expected to play for the first time since Week 3.

Also ruled inactive for the Chiefs were FB Nate Eachus, SS Bryan Kehl, C Bryan Mattison, DL Jerrell Powe, QB Brady Quinn and WR Devon Wylie.

Though the Chiefs are down a starting defensive back, they will be facing a Chargers squad that is depleted at wide receiver. The Chargers ruled out starter Robert Meachem and third receiver Eddie Royal prior to the game, leaving the team with just three healthy receivers: Malcom Floyd, Seyi Ajirotutu and Danario Alexander.

Alexander, who was just signed off the street last week, is expected to start opposite Floyd. Safety Eric Weddle will return punts in place of Royal.

Also deactivated for the game were CB Chris Carr, OLB Larry English, TE Ladarius Green, ILB James Mouton and SS Brandon Taylor.
