Kansas City Chiefs
Running back Peyton Hillis, defensive end Glenn Dorsey and safety Kendrick Lewis were inactive for the Kansas City Chiefs' game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Along with center Rodney Hudson and tight end Kevin Boss, who are on injured reserve, Kansas City is playing without five starters. Hillis (ankle) and Dorsey (calf) have missed the past two games, while Lewis (shoulder) hasn't played since the preseason.
Ropati Pitoitua (elbow), who had two sacks last week, is also inactive for Kansas City.
The Chiefs are also without backup defensive back Jalil Brown (hamstring), so they elevated undrafted rookie Neiko Thorpe from the practice squad and released center Bryan Mattison.
Backup offensive lineman Jah Reid (calf) and linebacker Sergio Kindle are the only notable inactive players for Baltimore.

Matt Cassel has had his struggles this season, but Kansas City fans took it too far by cheering when he went down with injury. At least that's what Chiefs right tackle Eric Winston thought. Winston blasted the Chiefs fans when he met with the media after the game. "When you cheer somebody getting knocked out, I don't care who it is, and it just so happened to be Matt...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. The day after the Eric Wintson storm in which he ripped Chiefs fans for seemingly cheering quarterback Matt Cassel getting hurt unveiled some new angles to the controversy. Some videos from fans circulated the web suggesting that the timing of the cheers occurred more after Cassel was helped to his feet and walked to the sideline. The cheers also got louder as wide...
Chiefs offensive tackle Eric Winston sat at his locker and chose his words wisely following a 9-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens before an angry crowd at Arrowhead Stadium. And then he ripped into the Kansas City faithful for cheering Matt Cassel as he was knocked out of the game.
"We are athletes, OK? We are athletes. We are not gladiators. This is not the Roman Coliseum. People...
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel will have to pass all the tests in the NFL's protocol for concussions before he'll be allowed back on the field, leaving his prognosis for this week very much up in the air..

Quarterback Matt Cassel has been knocked out of the Chiefs' game against Baltimore on Sunday after getting hit by the Ravens' Haloti Ngata while attempting a pass.
Cassel remained flat on his back for several minutes before getting helped up and walking off the field under his own power. Brady Quinn started warming up and entered the game to a round of applause.
Earlier I told you about how a group of Kansas City Chiefs fans had banded together to have a plane towing a banner reading, "We Deserve Better, Fire Pioli — Bench Cassel," fly around the stadium. Well, this weekend was the big day! The local news got a hold of the story and managed to grab an interview with Eric (no last name provided) who is the season ticket-holder...
Derek Anderson was once booed in a game against the Colts. Brady Quinn was already hurt in a previous game so D.A. was replaced by Ken Dorsey, but the QB battle with Brady Quinn had an awful lot to do with the reaction to Derek Anderson.
Now, the former Notre Dame QB (with the boyish good looks) is in the mix again with an unpopular starter, Matt Cassell, in Kansas City. During a...
Since the beginning of the 2012 season, the Baltimore Ravens have been rolling through opponents, posting a 3-1 record through four weeks. The defense has been stellar despite playing without defensive stud Terrell Suggs, and the offense has seemingly caught up, as a matured Joe Flacco has been playing better than he ever has before.On the other side of the NFL spectrum, the Kansas...
How can Kansas City boo Romeo Crennel? This is a coach that was embraced by the team and fans in 2011 following the poor attitude and coaching style of Todd Haley. He came in shortly after the team released Haley and coached the Chiefs as they handed the only loss to the Green Bay Packers
