KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Cleveland Browns are set to take on the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium Sunday afternoon, and will do so while being at their healthiest in weeks.

All four players on the Browns who were listed as questionable heading into Sunday's game— right tackle Jack Conklin (knee/hamstring), linebacker B.J. Goodson (shoulder), tight end David Njoku (hamstring) and tight end Stephen Carlson (groin)—were all listed as active before the game.

For the first time in a long time the Browns did not need to announce any lineup changes as the roster is at full force after players have returned from injury as well as the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Here are the Browns inactives for Sunday's game against the Chiefs:

  • WR Marvin Hall
  • CB Brian Allen
  • S Jovante Moffatt
  • T Alex Taylor
  • WR Alexander Hollins
  • TE Kyle Markway
  • DE Joe Jackson

Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs will enter Sunday's matchup down their rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who is out with an ankle injury.

The team had previously announced wide receiver Sammy Watkins and linebacker Willie Gay Jr. were ruled out with a calf injury and an ankle injury, respectively.

While he was not listed as an inactive, the Chiefs also announced Sunday before the game that offensive lineman Mike Remmers was questionable for the divisional playoff game with illness. If he is able to play, he may not be 100%, which would benefit the Browns defense greatly. Remmers has taken on the role of Mitchell Schwartz, who is on the team's injured reserve.

Here are the Chiefs inactives for Sunday's game:

  • WR Sammy Watkins
  • RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire
  • CB Rashad Fenton
  • LB Willie Gay
  • OT Martinas Rankin
  • DE Tim Ward
  • DT Khalen Saunders

The Browns and Chiefs kick things off at 3:05 pm.
