L. Williams active for the Ravens, two starters sidelined for the Chiefs

KANSAS CITY - Ravens wide receiver/special teamer LaQuan Williams will be active for the first time this season when Baltimore faces the Kansas City Chiefs today.

Williams played in 12 games last year, mostly on special teams, but was inactive for the Ravens' first four games this season.

Rookie safety Christian Thompson is among Baltimore's seven inactives.

Cornerback Asa Jackson, offensive lineman Jah Reid, tight end Billy Bajema, defensive lineman DeAngelo Tyson, outside linebacker Sergio Kindle and defensive lineman Bryan Hall are also inactive for the Ravens.

Starting defensive end Glen Dorsey (calf) and starting free safety Kendrick Lewis (shoulder) are both inactive for the Chiefs.

Dorsey is missing his second straight game. Lewis has yet to play this season.

Backup defensive end Ropati Pitoitua (elbow), who was likely to start in Dorsey's place, will be sidelined as well.

He had six tackles and two sacks amid Kansas City's 37-20 loss to the San Diego Chargers last week.

Backup running back Peyton Hillis (ankle) and reserve cornerback Jalil Brown are among the Chiefs' other inactives.
