BALTIMORE (AP) Chiefs injured defensive end Alex Okafor has been placed on the inactive list for Monday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Okafor played only 10 snaps in Kansas City's season opener before exiting with a hamstring injury, and he missed last week's overtime win over the Chargers.

Also inactive for the Chiefs: cornerback BoPete Keyes, defensive end Demone Harris, guard Andrew Wylie and tight end Ricky Seals-Jones.

Kansas City receiver Sammy Watkins was not on the inactive list despite being listed as questionable on Saturday with a concussion/neck injury.

Baltimore's inactive list includes receiver Chris Moore (finger), running back Justice Hill (thigh), defensive tackle Justin Madubuike (knee), safety Geno Stone, guard Ben Bredeson and defensive lineman Broderick Washington.

Third-string quarterback Trace McSorley was also inactive.

Before the game, Baltimore placed defensive back Tavon Young (knee) on injured reserve and activated safety Jordan Richards from the practice squad.

Player Notes
Tyreek Hill Sep 28 11:20pm ET

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill kept up his strong season on Monday versus the Baltimore Ravens. Hill soaked up five of six targets for 77 yards and a touchdown. The dynamic playmaker also rushed for 25 yards on two attempts. Hill now has a touchdown in every game this season. Hill has been off to a strong start this season and remains one of the top options in the league's most explosive offense. Next up for Hill is a date with the Patriots and he could draw a tough matchup against Stephen Gilmore, but Hill should be considered a WR1 week in and week out.

Sammy Watkins Sep 28 11:20pm ET

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins hauled in seven of eight targets for 62 yards on Monday versus the Baltimore Ravens. Watkins was questionable with both a concussion and neck injury, but suited up and played a big role in Monday's victory. Watkins like fellow wide receivers Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman will have his big games, but also is a shaky play week in and week out with so many options in the Chiefs powerful offense. Watkins has his most value as a WR4/WR5 or flex option. Watkins will look to keep it going against the Patriots in Week 4.

Mecole Hardman Sep 28 11:20pm ET

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman caught four of his six targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens. Hardman dropped what would've been a second touchdown right before halftime, but had a solid game nonetheless. Hardman has plenty of competition in an explosive offense and managers should expect inconsistency out of the young receiver. He remains best served in DFS, but can be owned in deeper leagues as a WR4/5 with upside.

Adoree' Jackson Sep 28 9:13pm ET

Tennessee Titans OT Isaiah Wilson (illness) and CB Adoree' Jackson (knee) may return to practice this week, according to head coach Mike Vrabel. Wilson is currently on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, while Jackson is on the Reserve/Injured list.

Nick Kwiatkoski Sep 28 9:13pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders OT Trent Brown (calf) and LB Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) may be available to play in the Week 4 game, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

D.J. Chark Sep 28 9:03pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark Jr. (back, chest) was undergoing tests Monday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Spin: Chark was not able to play last week and is questionable for the Week 4 game. Fantasy players should keep an eye on his practice participation during the week. He can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues this week if he plays.

Trey Burton Sep 28 8:53pm ET

Indianapolis Colts CB Rock Ya-Sin (illness), TE Trey Burton (calf) and DT Sheldon Day (knee) are expected to return to practice this week.

Kevin Johnson Sep 28 8:33pm ET

Cleveland Browns LB Mack Wilson (knee) and CB Kevin Johnson (liver) will receive more playing time moving forward after returning to the lineup in Week 3, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.

From TheHuddle

Denzel Ward Sep 28 8:33pm ET

Cleveland Browns CB Denzel Ward (groin) hopefully will be ready for the Week 4 game. Ward sat out the second half of the Week 3 game because of a groin injury.

Sam Darnold Sep 28 8:10pm ET

New York Jets head coach Adam Gase remains committed to struggling quarterback Sam Darnold after an 0-3 start. Darnold had three interceptions -- two which were returned for touchdowns -- in the Week 3 blowout loss to the Colts. Veteran backup Joe Flacco (neck) underwent surgery in April and has been out the first three games. Flacco didn't start practicing until last week and might be inactive again this Thursday against the Broncos. Mike White, who has no regular season experience, is currently the backup until Flacco gets healthy. It's not all Darnold's fault, as Gang Green's best offensive players -- Le'Veon Bell, Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman -- have all been sidelined by injuries in recent weeks. Until further notice, it's best to avoid this entire offense, even against a banged-up Broncos Defense in Week 4. Darnold has 32 interceptions in 29 career starts.

Jordan Jenkins Sep 28 8:03pm ET

New York Jets LB Jordan Jenkins (shoulder) is considered day-to-day because of a shoulder injury.

From TheHuddle

Jerick McKinnon Sep 28 7:53pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (ribs) is considered day-to-day because of injured ribs.

Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on McKinnon's practice participation during the week. He received a majority of the touches at running back last week, but his role this week is uncertain since Raheem Mostert may be able to play. McKinnon can be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he receive most of the work at running back this week.

Byron Jones Sep 28 7:53pm ET

Miami Dolphins CB Byron Jones (groin) did not participate in practice Monday, Sept. 28.

From TheHuddle

Dee Ford Sep 28 7:43pm ET

San Francisco 49ers DE Dee Ford (back) will not be able to play in Week 4 and may be a candidate for the Reserve/Injured list, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Sep 28 7:43pm ET

San Francisco 49ers LB Mark Nzeocha (quadriceps) likely will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list because of a quadriceps injury.

From TheHuddle

Jordan Reed Sep 28 7:33pm ET

San Francisco 49ers TE Jordan Reed (knee) suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament during the Week 3 game and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Reed will be sidelined for six to eight weeks.

Fantasy Spin: Reed was filling in for George Kittle but may not return until December because of the injury. Kittle has a chance to return this week, so fantasy players should monitor the situation. He is a must-start option if he plays.

From TheHuddle

Sammy Watkins Sep 28 7:20pm ET

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins (concussion, neck) is active for Monday night's meeting against the Baltimore Ravens. An inconsistent weapon for quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Watkins is best viewed as a risky DFS play this week for fantasy managers looking to differentiate their lineups from everyone else's, because you can't bet on Watkins having a solid night against a strong Ravens Defense. Still, the possibility that he finds the end zone will always exist in this high-powered Chiefs offense.

From RotoBaller

Justice Hill Sep 28 7:20pm ET

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill is a healthy scratch on Monday night against the Chiefs, making it three weeks in a row that the second-year back hasn't played. Fantasy managers had high hopes for Hill last year, but it's become clear that he's not going to have a consistent role -- or even any role -- in Baltimore. Hill shouldn't be rostered in redraft leagues and is barely rosterable in shallow dynasty leagues.

From RotoBaller

Chris Moore Sep 28 7:13pm ET

The Baltimore Ravens have declared RB Justice Hill, QB Trace McSorley, OG Ben Bredeson, DT Justin Madubuike, DT Broderick Washington, S Geno Stone and WR Chris Moore inactive for Week 3.
