The inactives have been released for the Houston Texans and the Kansas City Chiefs for their AFC Divisional Round playoff game.
The Houston Texans and the Kansas City Chiefs have released their inactive players list for the AFC Divisional Round Playoff game for Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium. Inactive for the Texans are the following players listed on the Texans PR Twitter page:
One player not on the list is Keke Coutee who at times this season has been a healthy stratch, and if is official Will Fuller is back from injury as well. Having Fuller back for this playoff game — which is his playoff debut — as he’s an X-Factor for the Texans in this game against Kansas City.
On the inactive list is Jordan Akins, as the tight end has been battling a hamstring injury.
The following are the inactive players for the Chiefs:
Chris Jones being out of the lineup for the Chiefs is huge for both sides, as Jones this season can disrupt an offense with his talents. This season Jones as nine sacks, so not having him pressure Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is an important aspect of this game.
This seems like most of the players for the Texans are going to be on the field who are difference makers, so even with The Action Network having the Texans a +10 underdogs, there is a realistic opportunity for the Texans to make this a very competitive game.
With the winner of this game advancing to the AFC Championship, expect the very best from both teams.
