We discuss the gameday inactives for the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs and their impact in the AFC Championship in the 2021 NFL Playoffs.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills kick off their Divisional round game at 6:40 p.m. ET on Sunday, and 90 minutes before the game the two teams announced their list of inactives. Both teams are getting healthier on offense as we head into this matchup. You can check out the rest of the inactives below.

Bills inactives

QB Jake Fromm
WR Kenny Stills
TE Tyler Kroft
OL Jordan Devey
DE Trent Murphy
CB Dane Jackson
LB Tyrel Dodson

The impact

The Bills are relatively healthy, and are getting much healthier at wide receiver as Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley both were taken off the injury report. They’ll also have Gabriel Davis active, who was questionable after getting one limited practice.

Chiefs inactives

WR Sammy Watkins
RB Le’Veon Bell
CB BoPete Keyes
LB Willie Gay
OL Yasir Durant
DE Tim Ward
DT Khalen Saunders

Getting Clyde Edwards-Helaire back this week is a nice addition to the offense, but Patrick Mahomes being cleared of his concussion is easily the biggest windfall for Kansas City.

It did appear that Sammy Watkins would return this week, but he’s not going to play along with Le’Veon Bell. Demarcus Robinson and Mercole Hardman continue to have some fantasy value while Darrell Williams should see a decent workload behind the returning Edwards-Helaire.
