The Chiefs will have tight end Travis Kelce against the Raiders Week 12.
Kelce entered the game listed as probable due to shoulder and rib injuries. He was never expected to miss the contest. The team will also have Zach Fulton, Phillip Gaines, Tamba Hali, Mike McGlynn and Sean Smith. All five were listed as probable coming into the game.
Anthony Fasano, who was listed as questionable, will attempt to give it a go. He's dealing with a knee injury.
The Raiders have listed the following players as inactive for Thursday night's matchup with the Chiefs: cornerbacks Carlos Rogers (knee) and T.J. Carrie (ankle), safety Jonathan Dowling (back), tight end David Ausberry (foot), guards Gabe Jackson (knee) and Tony Bergstrom and quarterback Matt McGloin.
Jackson was listed as questionable to play in the Week 12 divisional battle, while Rogers, Carrie, Dowling and Ausberry had previously been ruled out. The 0-10 Raiders are looking to end a 16-game losing streak Thursday.
Although Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray leads the NFL with 244 carries, the team has no plans to scale back his workload, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
"I have seen no signs of overuse," coach Jason Garrett told the paper. "I don't think we want to limit his carries. He's certainly the bell-cow runner for us and we want to get him the ball as a runner and as a receiver as much as we can."
