Jon McGraw, Jake O’Connell Among Chiefs Inactives

The Kansas City Chiefs have released their list of 8 inactive players for today’s game against the Browns in Cleveland.

DE Tyson Jackson, RT Ryan O’Callaghan, CB Jackie Bates, FB Mike Cox, S Jon McGraw, LB Charlie Anderson, TE Jake O’Connell and LB Justin Cole.

We already know that Jackson and O’Callaghan would be out with injuries, but McGraw had been listed as probable and is a bit of a surprise.  Rookie Kendrick Lewis will get the start, but keep your eye on second-year CB/S Donald Washington.  He was on the field for a lot of big spots last week, including the Chargers final play of the game, and will get more reps against the Browns.

With the weather not expected to be as bad as Monday night, the Chiefs swap out their 3rd tight end O’Connell for Horne.  Matt Cassel will need all the help he can get to make plays down the field and there won’t be a player on the Browns defense faster than the rookie out of UMass.
