KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs inactives against the Seattle Seahawks include starting tight end Anthony Fasasno.

Fasano (knee) did not practice the entire week and entered Sunday officially listed as questionable.

The Chiefs will lean on Phillip Supernaw, whom the team signed from the Baltimore Ravens practice squad earlier in the week, to offer depth behind Travis Kelce.

Cornerback Chris Owens (knee) is also inactive after returning to the lineup last week.

The Chiefs will likely utilize a rotation at the nickel cornerback position with Phillip Gaines or Marcus Cooper, depending on personnel groupings.

Ron Parker can also play cornerback.

The Chiefs’ remaining inactives are quarterback Aaron Murray, wide receiver Donnie Avery (groin), cornerback Jamell Fleming (hamstring), wide receiver A.J. Jenkins (shoulder) and offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.

Avery has missed six straight games since undergoing a sports hernia procedure in early October. He returned to practice in Week 10, but has been limited.

Second-year pro Frankie Hammond Jr. will start in Avery’s place.

Fleming originally suffered his injury in Week 8 against the St. Louis Rams and will miss a third straight game.

Murray and Duvernay-Tardif have yet to be active through nine regular-season games.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (calf) is active and will play against the Chiefs.
