KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)

Cornerback Brandon Flowers, Kansas City's leader in the secondary, will be out for Sunday's game against the New York Giants.

Slowed all week by a knee injury but hoping to be ready, Flowers has been declared inactive Sunday. This could be good news for the Giants' passing game. Receivers Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz have been slowed by a rash of injuries to the offensive line which have led to quarterback Eli Manning getting sacked a league-high 13 times in three games.

As expected, the Giants' ravaged line is without center David Baas and guard Chris Snee. Stepping in for Bass and making his first start at center is Jim Cordle.

Also out for the Chiefs are starting left guard Jeff Allen and starting tight end Anthony Fasano. In addition, backup tight end Travis Kelce is inactive.
