WR Albert Wilson inactive against Bengals

Chiefs wide receiver Albert Wilson is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.

Wilson, who practiced in a limited fashion the past week, has been nursing a shoulder injury and the Chiefs designated him as questionable on the final injury report heading into the weekend.

With Wilson not dressing for the game, wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr., is active for the first time this season.

The Chiefs could also turn to rookie wide receiver Chris Conley, who had his first career catch in Week 3, to fill Wilson’s spot in the starting lineup alongside Jeremy Maclin.

The remaining inactive players are quarterback Aaron Murray, rookie cornerback Steven Nelson, outside linebacker Dezman Moses, tight end Brian Parker, offensive lineman Jah Reid and rookie defensive lineman Rakeem Nunez-Roches.

Reid, who started the first two games of the season, has been inactive the past two games with the returns of right tackle Eric Fisher and guard Jeff Allen.
