Flowers In, Lawrence Out Vs. Buffalo

The inactives have been announced by the Chiefs for today’s game against the Buffalo Bills and there are some surprises.

  • QB Matt Gutierrez (Inactive 3rd QB)
  • WR Quinten Lawrence
  • RB Dantrell Savage
  • LB Justin Rogers
  • OL Ike Ndukwe
  • TE Jack O’Connell
  • TE Sean Ryan
  • LB Pierre Walters

Good to see Brandon Flowers active and ready to go.  He hadn’t practiced Thursday or Friday and would have been a major blow to the Chiefs hopes of trying to contain TO and Lee Evans.

The other surprise for me is Quinten Lawrence.  With both he and Savage out who returns kicks?  I’ll be the first one to tell you that Jamaal Charles is the team’s best option there but how many hits can he survive?  If Charles has to carry the ball 25+ times and return 4-5 kicks, he might not survive much longer.  The team needs to find out if he can handle being a feature back, but does that mean he should have to prove he can also be your best returner at the same time?
