KANSAS CITY – Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Jets inactive players for today’s NFL game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Live television coverage is on CBS and CBS All Access will provide the live streaming action.
As was announced earlier this week, wide receiver Sammy Watkins will not play today and as expected he’s among the list of inactive players for Kansas City in Week 8.
Watkins has not practiced this week but could be available for Week 9.
Given that they are facing the winless Jets this week, the Chiefs will be in no hurry to rush Watkins back as he continues to heal up from a nagging hamstring. Kansas City is favored by -19 points against New York.
Demarcus Robinson has done well so far and he is expected to be used as the team’s No. 2 wideout with Tyreek Hill.
Also inactive today for the Chiefs are running back DeAndre Washington, tight end Ricky Seals-Jones linebacker Darius Harris and tackle Khalen Saunders.
Meanwhile, Sam Ficken, who is being bothered by a groin problem is among the inactive players for the Jest for the Week 8 battle against the Chiefs.
Sergio Castillo will handle the kicking duties for the second straight week.
Joining Ficken on the inactive list for today’s difficulty mission are wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman, as well as QB James Morgan and LB Blake Cashman.
