Jackson ruled out for Chiefs

Posted Sep 18, 2010

Tyson Jackson moved from "questionable" to "out" on Saturday evening

The Chiefs will be without a starting defensive end as they aim to corral Jerome Harrison and the Browns rushing attack on Sunday in Cleveland. DE Tyson Jackson, who injured his left knee against San Diego, was officially ruled "out" of tomorrow's game earlier this evening. Jackson did not practice with the team this week, but had indicated to reporters that he was pleased with the progression of his injured knee. He was originally listed as "questionable" on the Chiefs injury report Friday afternoon.

Though the team has yet announce a starter at left defensive end, reserves Wallace Gilberry and Shaun Smith are expected to see a heavier workload on Sunday. Alex Magee, the Chiefs third-round pick in 2009, is another candidate to help fill the gap that Jackson's injury creates.

Kansas City will also be without right tackle Ryan O'Callaghan for the second consecutive week. O'Callaghan is still nursing a groin injury that he suffered in practice on August 24th. Barry Richardson is slated to start in O'Callaghan's place once again.

Neither Jackson nor O'Callaghan made the trip to Cleveland with the team.
