Inactives for Falcons & Chiefs

An important thing to note for this game is the inactives for the game, players who will not play. The Falcons list isn’t particularly extensive or chock full of key players. However, the Chiefs have some key players listed as inactive.

Falcons Inactives:

QB Dominique Davis

S Charles Mitchell,

CB Robert McClain

C Joe Hawley

LT Lamar Holmes

DE Lawrence Sidbury

DE Jonathan Massaquoi

 

Kansas City Chiefs Inactives

QB Ricky Stanzi

SS Kendrick Lewis

CB Brandon Flowers

RB Cyrus Gray

TE Steve Maneri

DE Allen Bailey

NT Anthony Toribio

 

The lack of presence from Flowers in the secondary, Lewis as a in-the-box safety, and Toribio at nose tackle in the front of this Chiefs 3-4 defense will be felt. It certainly helps the Falcons that they can target their #3 and 4 cornerbacks, and won’t have to deal with a veteran, starting Nose Tackle up front.

Outside Linebacker and pass-rush extraordinaire Tamba Hali is out for the game due to suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
