Chiefs Rule Out Two vs. Patriots

As the Kansas City Chiefs prepare to take on the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football they will put together their gameday 46-man roster with two players listed as “out” on the final injury report.

One of them, Matt Cassel, was ruled out early in the week following hand surgery but the other — Demorrio Williams — was absent from the injury report all week.  Williams missed last week’s game against the Denver Broncos with a groin injury and now will sit out his second straight game.

Brandon Carr, Glenn Dorsey, Brandon Flowers and Jon McGraw were limited participants in the Chiefs final practice and are all officially listed as “questionable”.  McGraw had been a full participant earlier in the week and Dorsey is expected to play, but the two Brandons will enter Monday night as the two most likely to live up to their injury designation.

Of the Patriots 18 players on the injury report, two are “out”, one is “doubtful”, 13 are “questionable” and two are “probable”.
