The Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys are set to square off this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. ET, and here’s a final look at the official injury report for both teams. There is one update I will be making to the list, and that regards Dunta Robinson‘s status.
Kansas City Chiefs
CB Dunta Robinson (cousin in ICU after car crash)- Robinson was not expected to play today, and Pro Football Talk reported last night that Robinson will miss the game in order to be with his cousin.
TE Travis Kelce (knee)- Kelce was active last week, but he didn’t play. He’s still dealing with a nagging knee injury from the preseason and was only unable to practice on a limited basis. I think he is active, but I’m not sure if he’ll do anything of significance.
RB Jamaal Charles (quadricep)- Charles has a bruised quad, and he stated that he’s “ready to play”. The only question is how healthy he is, but I’m sure Charles will have a big game and won’t be hindered by the injury.
G Jon Asamoah (calf)
LB Nico Johnson (ankle)
S Husain Abdullah (foot)
T Donald Stephenson (shoulder)
LB Dezman Moses (toe)
LB Ernie Sims (groin)
DE Anthony Spencer (knee)- The injury to the playmaking pass rusher is the most notable one for the Cowboys, and I would be surprised if he misses today’s game. That said, I would also be surprised if he starts, and he will reportedly be a backup upon his return.
QB Tony Romo (ribs)
WR Dez Bryant (foot)- These two are both obviously full-gos, but the fact that they are dealing with minor injuries has led the Cowboys to pump up their desire to have a more balanced offense. Let’s see if that ends up being the plan, and DeMarco Murray stated yesterday that he is ready for more touches.
CB Morris Claiborne (shoulder)
RB Lance Dunbar (foot)
S Danny McCray (hamstring)
