The Kansas City Chiefs have released their seven inactive players and there’s some good news for Romeo Crennel. Heading into Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders, the Chiefs had three offensive linemen questionable — Branden Albert, Jon Asamoah and Ryan Lilja — but all are active.
WR Steve Breaston, RB Nate Eachus, S Abe Elam, RB Cyrus Gray, OL Ross Hochstein, NT Jerrell Powe, QB Ricky Stanzi
The only injured Chiefs unable to play are the two that were already ruled out — Elam and Hochstein — and Gray, who would probable on the final injury report.
In what has become a weekly event, Breaston is a healthy scratch just days after Crennel suggested the veteran wasn’t smart enough to pick up the game plan, something he quickly walked back. It remains to be seen why the Chiefs haven’t just cut ties with Breaston, something that is a given in the offseason.
With WR Dwayne Bowe placed on injured reserve, it’s rookie Devon Wylie getting the nod over Breaston. Wylie, like Breaston, has been a healthy scratch most of the season and has not shown any signs of being a weapon in Brian Daboll’s offense.
