Here are probable starters for Chiefs on Thursday in St. Louis

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Practice was upside down for the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday. The starters won’t play in Thursday night’s preseason game at the St. Louis Rams, so those players worked on the scout team while the backups took the work normally reserved for the starters.

Here are the players who, based off what I saw in practice, will start for the Chiefs in St. Louis:


Quarterback – Chase Daniel

Running back – Spencer Ware and Darrin Reaves rotated

Wide receiver – Chris Conley, Frankie Hammond Jr., Da’Ron Brown and Fred Williams took turns

Tight end – Ryan Taylor, Demetrius Harris and James O’Shaughnessy rotated

Offensive line, left to right – Jarrod Pughsley, Daniel Munyer, Zach Fulton, Paul Fanaika, Derek Sherrod


DL – Mike Catapano, Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Nick Williams

ILB – Ramik Wilson, D.J. Alexander

OLB – Dezman Moses, Dee Ford

CB – Marcus Cooper, Steven Nelson

S – Eric Berry, Tyvon Branch
