Brandon Flowers inactive for Chiefs vs. Giants


The Chiefs starting cornerback will not play on Sunday with a knee injury.

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers will be inactive on Sunday against the New York Giantsper Arrowhead Pride.

Flowers suffered a knee injury prior to last week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles and ended up leaving the contest after the injury flared up during the game. Flowers practiced in a limited fashion this week but is unable to go during Sunday's game against the Giants.

The Giants have struggled so far this season, but they still possess a potentially dangerous passing attack with Eli Manning at quarterback.

The Chiefs' depth will be tested against the 0-3 Giants, with starting tight end Anthony Fasano and guard Jeff Allen all out with injuries. Allen has been frustrated by a calf injury and will be replaced by Geoff Schwartz, while Fasano continues to rehab from an ankle injury suffered in Week 1.

Chiefs inactives:

QB Tyler Bray, G Rishaw Johnson, CB Brandon Flowers, TE Anthony Fasano, TE Travis Kelce, G Jeff Allen, DT Jaye Howard.
