KANSAS CITY, Mo. –Chiefs starting right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is active against the New York Jets, but will not start, forcing another shuffle among the team’s starting guards before Sunday’s game.

Jordan Devey gets the start in place of Duvernay-Tardif, who the team listed as questionable Friday with an ankle sprain. Starting left guard Parker Ehinger was already rule out for the game with both a concussion and foot injury. Zach Fulton started in place of Ehinger last week against Houston, and will do so again versus the Jets.

The Chiefs also made running back Jamaal Charles inactive for the third-straight game. The All-Pro back appears close to returning, but the Chiefs listed him as doubtful on Friday. The team continues erring on the side of caution in rushing Charles back too quickly from knee surgery.

Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall is listed as active, although media reports from New York suggest he may be limited in playing time.

The Jets also are without starting linebacker Erin Henderson. Darron Lee draws the start in his place.

Full inactive list for both teams:

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS: QB Tyler Bray, WR De’Anthony Thomas, RB Jamaal Charles, CB Kenneth Acker, OG Parker Ehinger, OL Jah Reid, LB Sam Barrington,

NEW YORK JETS: QB Christian Hackenberg, QB Bryce Petty, RB Troymain Pope, CB Darryl Roberts, LB Mike Catalan, LB Erin Henders, T Brandon Shell
