Ahead of kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, the Browns released their inactives list. In doing so, Cleveland revealed that All-Pro right tackle Jack Conklin (knee/hamstring), tight end David Njoku (hamstring), linebacker B.J. Goodson (shoulder) and tight end Stephen Carlson (groin) will play against the Chiefs. All four players had been listed as questionable heading into Sunday.

As a result, the following players will be inactive and unavailable to play against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium:

  • WR Marvin Hall
  • CB Brian Allen
  • S Jovante Moffatt
  • T Alex Taylor
  • WR Alexander Hollins
  • TE Kyle Markway
  • DE Joe Jackson

While Cleveland will relatively be at full strength on Sunday, the same can't be said for the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs. Earlier this week, Kansas City ruled wide receiver Sammy Watkins out for the divisional round due to a calf injury. On Sunday, the Chiefs ruled rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire out due to ankle and hip injuries.

Kansas City's full list of inactive players for Sunday is as follows:

  • WR Sammy Watkins
  • RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire
  • CB Rashad Fenton
  • LB Willie Gay
  • OT Martinas Rankin 
  • DE Tim Ward 
  • DT Khalen Saunders

The winner of Sunday's matchup between the Browns and Chiefs will advance to next Sunday's AFC Championship Game, where they will face the Buffalo Bills. For all the latest from Sunday's divisional round matchup, follow our live blog.
