Kansas City Chiefs Inactive Report And Injury List, Week 15: Kyle Orton Gives The Finger A Go Versus Packers

Kyle Orton will start on Sunday for the Kansas City Chiefs, and will be faced with an extremely tough task as the Green Bay Packers and their undefeated record take their talents to Arrowhead Stadium.

Some interesting words from the folks at Yahoo! Sports about the quarterback conundrum in KC:

Kyle Orton has been designated as the starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Packers, if he's healthy enough to play. Orton, who is recovering from the broken index finger on his right hand, will be backed up by rookie Ricky Stanzi. Tyler Palko has gone 1-3 while starting the past four games, having thrown seven interceptions and two touchdown passes since replacing Matt Cassel (right hand surgery).

Here is the inactive and injury report for the Chiefs on week 15:
