Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco to play vs. Ravens

Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco is active and will play against the host Baltimore Ravens in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.

Pacheco carried a questionable tag into the game due to ankle and toe injuries. He sat out practice on Wednesday and Thursday before being limited on Friday.

Pacheco, 24, rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown in last Sunday’s 27-24 divisional round victory over the Buffalo Bills. He ran for 935 yards and seven touchdowns and added 44 catches for 244 yards and two scores in 14 games during the regular season.

While Pacheco is active, linebacker Willie Gay was inactive for Sunday’s game. Gay had been questionable to compete due to the neck injury that knocked him out of last week’s win over the Bills.

Safety Mike Edwards is active after being listed as questionable heading into the game. Guard Joe Thuney, wide receiver Kadarius Toney, cornerbacks Keith Taylor and Ekow Boye-Dow, and defensive ends BJ Thompson and Felix Anudike-Uzomah are inactive for the Chiefs.

As for the Ravens, Marlon Humphrey is active but fellow cornerback Rock Ya-Sin is inactive for Sunday’s game. Humphrey (calf) and Ya-Sin (knee) were both questionable heading into the game due to their respective injuries.

Wide receiver Tylan Wallace, linebacker Del’Shawn Phillips, guard Sala Aumavae-Laulu, center Sam Mustipher, and quarterbacks Josh Johnson and Malik Cunningham are inactive for Baltimore. Johnson would serve as the emergency third quarterback.
