Just moments from now, the Kansas City Chiefs battle the rival Los Angeles Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium. Unfortunately, Patrick Mahomes and Co. won't be at full strength. 

Kansas City has announced that seven players will be "inactive" for tonight's AFC West battle on Prime Video. That list includes: running back Ronald Jones, kicker Harrison Butker, quarterback Shane Buechele, linebacker Jack Cochrane, defensive end Joshua Kaindoh, tackle Darian Kinnard and defensive end Malik Herring. 

Butker is the most notable loss of the evening. He suffered an ankle injury in Week 1. The Chiefs signed Matt Ammendola to the active roster for tonight's game. He will handle kickoffs and field goals this evening. 

"Here are our inactives for tonight's game against the Chargers: RB Ronald Jones K Harrison Butker QB Shane Buechele LB Jack Cochrane DE Joshua Kaindoh T Darian Kinnard DE Malik Herring," the Chiefs announced.

Luckily, most of the Kansas City Chiefs offense will be at full strength, and that's good news for Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid. 

We are going to learn a lot about the Chiefs and the Chargers tonight. The winner will have an early leg-up in the race for the AFC West title.

Catch tonight's game on Prime Video. Kickoff is scheduled for a little 8:15 p.m. ET.
