Rookie tight end James O’Shaughnessy is among the seven Chiefs players inactive for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions at Wembley Stadium in London.

The 6-4, 245-pound O’Shaughnessy played in the previous seven games and has six catches for 87 yards on the season.

With O’Shaughnessy not dressing, rookie tight end Brian Parker, who measures 6-4, 265 pounds, is set to make his first appearance of the season.

Parker originally joined the Chiefs on Sept. 6 after being claimed off waivers from the San Diego Chargers.

The remaining inactives are quarterback Aaron Murray, cornerback Marcus Cooper, rookie inside linebacker Ramik Wilson (ankle), left guard Ben Grubbs (neck), defensive end Mike DeVito (concussion) and wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr.

The Chiefs previously ruled out Grubbs, DeVito and Wilson on Thursday before flying overseas.

With Grubbs not playing, offensive lineman Jah Reid is active for the first time since he started the first two games of the season.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who missed Week 7 with a concussion, is active and makes his return to the lineup.
