Chiefs, Bengals missing key pieces for Sunday night showdown

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs are missing top pass rusher Justin Houston and safety Eric Berry along with starting center Mitch Morse for their Sunday night game against the banged-up Cincinnati Bengals.

Houston is out with a hamstring injury and Berry has been hobbled by a heel injury since the start of training camp. Morse sustained a concussion in last week's loss in New England.

Bengals center Billy Price is inactive with a foot injury and tight end Tyler Kroft is out with a knee injury, while their defense is missing Nick Vigil (knee) and cornerback Darqueze Dennard (shoulder).

Cincinnati does have safety Shawn Williams available after spending the first part of the week in the NFL's concussion protocol. He starts alongside rookie Jessie Bates.
