Orton inactive for Chiefs’ game against Steelers
Quarterback Kyle Orton is inactive for the Chiefs’ game against
Pittsburgh on Sunday night after getting claimed off waivers from
Denver earlier this week.
Tyler Palko is getting his second consecutive start with Ricky
Stanzi serving as the backup.
Offensive lineman Ryan Lilja is also inactive for Kansas City
after sustaining a concussion in last week’s 31-3 loss to New
England. Rookie Rodney Hudson is slated to start in his place.
Linebacker LaMarr Woodley is out for the third straight game for
Pittsburgh with a nagging hamstring injury, though All-Pro
linebacker James Harrison is available.
Harrison is a limited participant in practice this week due to a
back that underwent two surgeries this offseason. He had been
listed as probable against the Chiefs.
