Chiefs S Eric Berry headlines list of inactives against Chargers

The list of Chiefs inactives for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers carries no surprises.

The notable inactives are strong safety Eric Berry (ankle), who misses a fourth straight game, cornerback Chris Owens (knee) and wide receiver Donnie Avery (groin).

Berry suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 2 leading to the missed time. He practiced Monday and Wednesday, but sat out Thursday and Friday’s practice. The Chiefs on Friday officially declared Berry as out.

Defensive back Ron Parker will start a fourth straight game in Berry’s place, while wide receiver A.J. Jenkins will start a second straight game for Avery, who underwent sports hernia surgery on Oct. 3.

The Chiefs are expected to utilize rookie cornerback Phillip Gaines or Jamell Fleming at the nickel in place of Owens.

The Chiefs also list quarterback Aaron Murray, offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, center Eric Kush, defensive end Damion Square as inactive.

Murray, Duvernay-Tardif and Square have yet to dress this season.

Rookie wide receiver Albert Wilson is active for the first since Week 1 where he logged one special teams snap against the Tennessee Titans.

Meanwhile, Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers (groin) is active.

Flowers spent six seasons with the Chiefs before his release on June 13. He signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Chargers on June 25.

Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett (shoulder) is inactive.
