Chiefs vs. Chargers: Final Injury Report

The Kansas City Chiefs have released their final injury report ahead of tonight’s AFC West showdown with the San Diego Chargers.

Here’s the damage:

Copper, Terrance WR Calf - LP LP questionable
Dorsey, Glenn DE Calf LP LP LP questionable
Eachus, Nate RB Head DNP Out Out Out
Maneri, Steve TE Ankle LP LP LP questionable
Quinn, Brady QB Head DNP Out Out Out
Routt, Stanford CB Hamstring - LP LP questionable
Wylie, Devon WR Hamstring FP FP FP probable

Obviously there will be no Nasty Nate or Brady Quinn tonight, but Routt and Dorsey being questionable is a concern. If Dorsey still isn’t healthy enough to practice in full then I doubt he will play tonight. The Chiefs will likely put him on the shelf as they’ll have ten days between games after tonight.

As for Routt, it might be wise to just sit him as well. Hamstring injuries are notoriously bothersome and at 1-6, there isn’t much sense in risking further injury, especially with a ten day layoff coming. If the Chiefs were somehow in contention then I could see Routt giving it a go but considering the only thing the 2012 Chiefs are in contention for is the number one overall pick in the draft, it might be best if Routt doesn’t play.
