Buffalo Bills Inactives Include Fred Jackson, Kirk Morrison Vs. Chiefs

The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs will face off Sunday in a game that will keep at least one team from starting off a disappointing 2-0 in a season where both teams were considered to be sleeper candidates to crash the playoffs in 2012. The Bills took a pounding last week courtesy of the New York Jets and the Atlanta Falcons did the same to the Chiefs at Arrowhead. Thus this is a major game for both teams in terms of momentum, morale and in the standings.

The Bills will be without running back Fred Jackson today but the presence of C.J. Spiller definitely eases the burden on the passing game to have to compensate. Spiller went off last week in a losing effort, and the Chiefs simply have to account for him when on the field. Another notable absence is linebacker Kirk Morrison.

Here's a complete list of the Buffalo Bills inactives for Sunday's game:
Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson
Running back Fred Jackson
Center Colin Brown
Tackle Sam Young
Defensive end Kyle Moore
Linebacker Kirk Morrison
Safety Delano Howell

Fred Jackson Only Player Out For Buffalo Bills In Week 2

Running back Fred Jackson will be the only player for the Buffalo Bills that misses this weekend's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to SB Nation's Buffalo Rumblings. Jackson suffered a sprained LCL in the team's loss to the New York Jets and could miss anywhere from three to eight weeks as he recovers.

Jackson had just 15 yards on six carries before his injury in the first game of the season. The running back dealt with injuries in 2011 as well, rushing for 934 yards in ten games before being lost for the season in November. Jackson has spent his entire career with the Bills, rushing for 3,809 yards since 2007.

The Bills might have just as viable a replacement, however, with third-year running back C.J. Spiller set to take over the starting role in Jackson's absence. The shifty back rushed for 169 yards on 14 carries against the Jets, and had 561 yards on 107 carries last season.

Marcel Dareus was the only other player to show up on the injury report this week but is expected to play against the Chiefs. Dareus was dismissed from practice this week to attend the funeral of his brother.

Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster Enjoys Brian Daboll's New Offense

At one point in the offseason, there were rumors that the Kansas City Chiefs might not have any use for Dexter McCluster anymore. After a few seasons of moving between positions, the team acquired new faces like Cyrus Gray and Devon Wylie in the draft, guys who seemed to also serve in places that McCluster could have been. Thus it seemed like he was a potential candidate to be traded or even released.

However the team's second round pick has only excelled in Brian Daboll's offense so far. After a solid preseason and training camp, McCluster has come on strong in the 2012 campaign to lead the team in receiving yards after the first game.

McCluster says he's happy to have the stats under his belt, but it's hardly cause to celebrate. He's simply doing his job.

"It's always good to get a lot of passes, but it's my job to get open and it's my job to be in the right spot at the right time, and Matt really trusts me, so I'm thankful for it," said McCluster. "Coach Daboll, he's a great coordinator. He knows how to put his players in the right position. Like I said, I'm going to go out there and do what I'm coached, and if I get the ball, I do."

What does make him happier than anything is having a place on the roster at wideout rather than moving between wide receiver and running back.

"It feels good just focusing on one position," said McCluster. "My whole career, I've been bouncing around a lot, but right now, I'm solely concentrating on slot receiver and getting my technique better every day."

Kansas City Chiefs Still Lack Timetable For Kendrick Lewis' Return

Kendrick Lewis has finally been active in practice for the Kansas City Chiefs. However, don't expect the starting safety to be ready anytime soon.

Lewis has yet to play in the regular season for the Chiefs due to injury and head coach Romeo Crennel says that he has no timeline in place. Still after sitting out for several weeks from practice, it's a good sign that he's now officially termed as "limited" for the team in practice rather than sitting it out.

"Well I know he's working to try to get better and he's going to do everything he can to get better," said Crennel when asked about a potential timeline for Lewis' return. "And whenever he's ready, he'll be out there. I'm not a doctor, so I can't speculate about how close he is or how far he is or things like that. I know that he started range of motion and he's doing better."

Lewis himself also didn't know when he would be able to return, saying that he will be ready to go when the team "unleashes" him. Instead he's just trying to stay ready for when his number is finally called again.

"I'm just trying to do my best at working and getting well and getting back out there," said Lewis after practice on Wednesday. "Don't know what the timetable is going to be, whenever my time is called I'll be back out there ready to go."

For now the team will continue to move forward with Abram Elam as the starter opposite Eric Berry at the safety position. With injuries to Brandon Flowers and Jalil Brown as well, the Chiefs are thinner than they'd like to be in the secondary. Hopefully Lewis can bolster the unit sooner than later, but don't expect him to play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.

Kansas City Chiefs Cut Junior Hemingway

The Kansas City Chiefs parted ways with rookie wide receiver Junior Hemingway Tuesday, according to Arrowhead Pride's Joel Thorman.

Hemingway, the team's seventh-round draft choice out of Michigan in the most recent NFL Draft, was cut from the team's practice squad just three days after he was reacquired.

Hemingway could eventually make his way back to the team's practice squad, but it's clear that wide receiver apparently isn't that pressing of a need at this time.

Hemingway had one catch for 14 yards during his first NFL preseason, after injuries held him out of two contests. The former Wolverine was also plagued by injuries throughout his collegiate career, but did catch 34 balls for 699 yards and four touchdowns during his senior year.

It's unclear at this time who will take his place on the practice squad.
