The Chiefs will be without a few key starters today against the Giants.

Cornerback Brandon Flowers (knee) and guard Jeff Allen (groin), who each played against the Eagles last week, are inactive, along with tight ends Anthony Fasano (ankle/knee) and Travis Kelce (knee).
Dunta Robinson, who has served as the Chiefs' nickel cornerback, would seem to be a obvious choice to replace Flowers, while Geoff Schwartz ― who filled in for starting guard Jon Asamoah in the Chiefs' week one victory over Jacksonville ― is a candidate to fill in for Allen. Tight ends Sean McGrath and Kevin Brock filled in last week for Fasano and Kelce, who also missed the Philadelphia game with their respective injuries.
Safety Kendrick Lewis (ankle), defensive end Mike DeVito (neck), offensive tackle Branden Albert (shoulder), fullback Anthony Sherman (knee) and linebacker Frank Zombo (elbow) were all listed on the injury report on Friday but will play today.
Quarterback Tyler Bray, guard Rishaw Johnson, defensive lineman Jaye Howard are also inactive for the Chiefs.
