The inactive lists for Sunday's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been released. As many expected after last week's big hit from Haloti Ngata, Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel is going to sit this game out. This will give Brady Quinn a chance to revive his career if he plays well in Cassel's absence.

Other inactive players for the Chiefs: wide receiver Devon Wylie, defensive back Tysyn Hartman, running back Peyton Hillis, defensive end Glenn Dorsey, center Bryan Mattison and linebacker Bryan Kehl.

For Tampa Bay, it's mostly young players on the inactive list. There's rookies Michael Smith, linebacker Najee Goode, Chris Owusu, tight end Danny Noble, cornerback Keith Tandy, second-year offensive lineman Cody Wallace and third-year linebacker Markus White.

The Chiefs are looking for a change of pace after starting the season 1-4. The Bucs are in a similar position. They had last week off, but Tampa hasn't won a game since its season opener against the Carolina Panthers.
