KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Though three starters were already ruled out on Friday for Sunday's game against Kansas City, two of the Broncos' three players listed as questionable will be available to play.

Tight end Noah Fant and inside linebacker Joe Jones do not appear the team's list of inactives.

After Fant recorded 118 yards and a touchdown on four catches in a Week 14 win over Houston, his availability may be key for rookie quarterback Drew Lock and the rest of the Broncos' offense. Jones, meanwhile, has been a valuable reserve linebacker and special-teamer.

The other questionable player, rookie defensive end Dre'Mont Jones, is inactive after suffering an ankle injury in Houston.

With Adam Gotsis and DeMarcus Walker already out for the game, the Broncos will look to Jonathan Harris, Deyon Sizer and Kyle Peko, who will be active for the Broncos for the first time this season. Sizer had been on the Broncos' practice squad all season until receiving a promotion to the active roster on Saturday, but Peko just joined the team ahead of its flight to Kansas City.

The Broncos' offensive line will also be hindered by injuries, as starters Ron Leary and Ja'Wuan James were ruled out for the game on Friday.

Denver's full list of inactives is below.


The Chiefs' inactive players are QB Chad Henne, CB Morris Claiborne, RB Damien Williams, CB Rashad Fenton, T Jackson Barton, C Nick Allegretti and TE Deon Yelder.
