Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis will get the start today against the Houston Texans today, despite a nagging ankle injury.

Lewis, who has been dealing with the injury for several weeks, was the only Chief listed as questionable or worse on the pregame injury report, which means the Chiefs will have their full complement of starters for the first time since their 17-16 win over Dallas in week two.

The seven inactive Chiefs are: Tyler Bray, tight end Kevin Brock, safety Bradley McDougald, linebacker Dezman Moses, center Eric Kush, guard Rishaw Johnson and defensive end Jaye Howard.

The seven inactive Titans are: quarterback Matt Schaub, running back Cierre Wood, linebacker Tim Dobbins, linebacker Willie Jefferson, tackle Andrew Gardner, guard Cody White and defensive end Sam Montgomery.
