Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford injured his back in pregame warmups and was a scratch for Sunday’s game against the Chargers.

Joining Ford on the inactive list were offensive guard Ben Grubbs, defensive lineman Allen Bailey, quarterback Aaron Murray, running back Knile Davis, linebacker Ramik Wilson and defensive tackle David King, who was claimed off waivers from Seattle earlier this week.

Inactive for the Chargers: defensive back Adrien Phillips, cornerback Greg Ducre, linebacker Kavell Conner, defensive lineman Damion Square, offensive lineman Tyreek Burwell, wide receiver Malcom Floyd and linebacker Cardarro Law.

The Chargers signed wide receiver Tyrell Williams, a rookie from Western Oregon, from their practice squad on Saturday. To make room for Williams, the Chargers waived tight end Sean McGrath, the former Chief.
