We don’t have the official inactives report yet as it is released an hour and a half before kickoff, but we know which players are definitely not playing. Nobody is officially listed as out for the Chiefs, while the Texans will be without WR Nico Collins (foot), WR Brandin Cooks (calf), G Kenyon Green (ankle), CB Steven Nelson (foot), RB Dameon Pierce (ankle), DT Taylor Stallworth (calf) and CB Derek Stingley (hamstring). We will get the full list of inactives around 11:30 a.m. ET, but for now, here is what we know about players in question.
The Chiefs listed DT Chris Jones (illness) and WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) as questionable. Tony participated on a limited basis at practice all week, and Jones did not practice at all on Friday.
Texans C Justin McCray (hamstring) returned to practice as a limited participant on Friday and is ruled as questionable.
