The official injury report for the New York Giants and Kansas City Chiefs has been released on Giants.com:

The big news for the Giants is starting center, David Baas, starting right guard, Chris Snee, and starting cornerback, Corey Webster, have all been ruled out. Adrien Robinson is also listed as out, but that is not a surprise and has very little impact on the game.
It also doesn’t look like the battered offensive line will be getting any reinforcements, with David Diehl listed as doubtful.
The Giants offensive line, which has been horrendous to start the season, is losing two more starters. I guess the only positive to say here is that their reserves can’t be much worse, right? Right?! To make matters even more foreboding for the Giants, the Chiefs lead the league in sacks (15). I hope Eli Manning has a good life insurance policy.
Jacquian Williams and Cooper Taylor are questionable and will likely be game time decisions.

A little positive news for the Giants, a rarity these days, Terrell Thomas seems to be fine and is listed as probable. Spencer Paysinger and Justin Trattou are also listed as probable.
For the Chiefs, the only player ruled out for Sunday is rookie tight end Travis Kelce. Their big shutdown corner, Brandon Flowers, is questionable but will most likely play. However, he has been struggling with a knee issue for a couple of games and even though he started in their last game against the Eagles, he was unable to play the whole game.
Overall, the Giants are in serious trouble this weekend. They are going on the road to face an undefeated Chiefs squad whose defense has been playing out of their mind. Meanwhile, the Giants offensive line is a MASH unit. Seriously, the Chiefs might break the record for sacks in a game on Sunday. This one could get ugly, at least offensively for the GMEN. I have a feeling the Giants best chance on Sunday will be for their defense to come up with some big plays.
