The Kansas City Chiefs have now released their final injury report ahead of Sunday’s night game at Heinz Field against the Pittsburgh Steelers and it shows that two players have been officially ruled out for the contest.
Ruled out by Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on Friday were tackle Jah Reid (knee, ankle) and running back Charcandrick West (ankle).
Listed as questionable for the Chiefs heading into the weekend are linebacker Tamba Hali (knee, hand), cornerback Phillip Gaines (knee) and running back Jamaal Charles (knee). According to a Friday report by Adam Schefter of ESPN, Charles will make his 2016 debut Sunday night against the Steelers. Charles, however, was limited in practice this week so one would think running back Spencer Ware will receive the bulk of the work against the Steelers.
Despite being listed as questionable (knee), Chiefs' RB Jamaal Charles will make 2016 season debut Sunday night in Pitt, per source.

Gaines’ situation is an interesting one as he failed to practice Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Additionally, many expect Hali to play on a limited basis against the Steelers.
Guard Parker Ehinger (concussion), linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring), guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (ankle), and cornerbackMarcus Peters (illness) are all expected to play Sunday night. Peters, however, did sit out two practices this week because he had the flu.
