Justin Houston, Kansas City Chiefs’ star outside linebacker, is expected to be on the field for this weekend’s Wild Card matchup between the Chiefs and Indianapolis Colts.
Houston has been sidelined with a dislocated elbow since Week 12. That injury caused him to miss the rest of the regular season, but Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star is reporting that it looks like Houston will return for the Chiefs’ playoff game:
But Saturday, when the Chiefs head to Indianapolis for their first-round playoff game, all signs point to Houston finally being ready to play, a return to normalcy that can do plenty of good for a team that has gone 2-5 in its last seven games.
“Those guys are great pass rushers so (teams) can’t just come in and … double one person,” Poe said via Paylor. “Somebody has to have a one-on-one … when one of those guys are down, it’s not the same.”
Paylor also reports that Houston will be wearing an arm brace, but if needed, he could have played in last weekend’s game at San Diego.
