OL Jeff Allen active against Packers

Chiefs offensive lineman Jeff Allen (knee) is active for Monday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Allen, who suffered the knee injury in the preseason opener, makes his return to the lineup after being inactive the first two regular-season games.

With Allen available for action, offensive lineman Jah Reid is inactive.

Reid started the first two games at right tackle in place of Eric Fisher, who was dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Fisher took first-team repetitions the past week of practice and returns to the starting lineup.

The remaining Chiefs players not dressing for the game are quarterback Aaron Murray, rookie cornerback Steven Nelson, outside linebacker Dezman Moses, tight end Brian Parker, wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr., and rookie defensive lineman Rakeem Nunez-Roches.
