OAKLAND The Raiders will be without cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and tight end Zach Miller today against the Kansas City Chiefs as both were on the inactive list.Asomugha sprained his right ankle in last weeks 33-3 defeat of the Seattle Seahawks and Miller has had a sore arch on his right foot the past few weeks.The rest of the Raiders inactives WRs Louis Murphy and Chaz Schilens, RB Michael Bennett, DT John Henderson and LB Bruce Davis. Bruce Gradkowski is the 3rd QB.Chris Johnson is starting at cornerback with Asomugha out and Brandon Myers is at tight end. Rookie Jacoby Ford is again starting at receiver, in place of Murphy.Took a little longer than usual to get into the parking lot today, what with the sellout and the weather.Matter of fact, the rainy conditions might make the absence of Asomugha less of a factor, since the Chiefs will be less likely to throw the ball.The Chiefs have already played in a rainstorm their season-opener against San Diego and are the No. 1-ranked rushing team in the NFL, but dead last in passing.
