Chiefs DE Glenn Dorsey is out Sunday

KANSAS CITY – Just when the Kansas City Chiefs were getting healthy on defense, they are dealing with another key injury.

Defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey is inactive for Sunday’s game against San Diego. Dorsey injured his calf this week in practice. He was listed as questionable on the injury report. Ropati Pitoitua and Allen Bailey will likely rotate at Dorsey’s right defensive end spot.

As expected, receiver Dwayne Bowe (groin) is active and expected to start. Fellow receivers Steve Breaston and Dexter McCluster are also active. They were questionable along with Bowe. Rookie receiver Devon Wylie is not active.

Starting safety Kendrick Lewis is inactive for the fourth straight game, even though he has been practicing for the past couple of weeks. I’d expect him to play next week at Baltimore. He has been out since August with a shoulder injury.

As expected, running back Peyton Hillis (ankle) and tight end Kevin Boss (concussion) are out.
