Chiefs without 3 starters against Ravens

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.
