Safety Kendrick Lewis listed as probable to play in his first regular season game for the Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis is listed as probable on the team's injury report this week which means the third-year player could make his first start of the season on Sunday when the Chiefs play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Tampa, FL.

Lewis injured his shoulder in the preseason and has not suited up to play since. He has been practicing on a limited basis for a few weeks but this week went through full practices, running with the starting unit. Coach Romeo Crennel has been cautious with Lewis, wanting to make sure his shoulder was strong enough to endure contact before allowing him to return to game action.

Last season Lewis finished the year with 60 tackles and three interceptions. Other Chiefs listed as probable and expected to play include RB Shaun Draughn, DB Jalil Brown and G Ryan Lilja.

The Chiefs have ruled out QB Matt Cassel, DE Glenn Dorsey, RB Peyton Hillis and WR Devon Wylie.
