Chiefs injury report: Stanford Routt, Nate Eachus added for KC

The Chiefs have a couple of new players on the injury report for Tuesday as they prep for the Thursday night showdown against the Chargers.

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs announced their latest round of updates from Arrowhead Stadium on Tuesday and there are a mix of familiar and new faces on the list. Romeo Crennel updated the press today on the Chiefs' health and there are new concerns as the team readies itself for the San Diego Chargers game on Thursday night.

Nate Eachus and Brady Quinn have each been declared officially out for Thursday's game, which means that Ricky Stanzi is now the primary back-up for the time being.

Eachus will limit the backfield somewhat, but the return of Hillis, who is completely off of the injury report, helps that significantly.

In addition, cornerback Stanford Routt has been added as a limited participant due to a sore hamstring. Steve Maneri and Glenn Dorsey remain limited in practice after being declared inactive for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders.

Matt Cassel will start at quarterback as announced earlier today in place of Quinn.
