KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs are down six starters, including reigning league MVP Patrick Mahomes, for their showdown of division leaders against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.

Mahomes practiced on a limited basis early in the week before he was ruled out Friday, just over a week after dislocating his kneecap against Denver. Matt Moore is starting in his place.

The Chiefs are also without left tackle Eric Fisher and left guard Andrew Wylie on offense and starting defensive linemen Frank Clark and Chris Jones along with cornerback Kendall Fuller on defense.

The Packers remain without wide receiver Davante Adams, who was hopeful of playing after missing time with a toe injury. Safety Darnell Savage Jr. and linebacker Blake Martinez are active.
