Locked on Chiefs – Going back to Indy
By Ryan Tracy
Several Chiefs players are dealing with injuries, some chronic and some acute.
The Kansas City Chiefs were without Tamba Hali or Mitchell Schwartz at practice again yesterday. Its possible that if Schwartz doesn’t practice today he will be out against the Colts. While it would hurt to not have him this is a game that it wouldn’t hurt as much as it could in a couple of weeks. Jamaal Charles was limited and Phillip Gaines was listed as a full participant which is a good sign moving forward.

The Colts game on Sunday starts a stretch of games for KC that are very winnable. The Chiefs are going up against opponents who are no where near as talented as they are for the next two weeks. The Colts have the Chiefs beat at QB and maybe WR but that could be argued. The Chiefs should be able to slow Luck down and keep the running game off balance. This is a game KC should win even in Indy.
Justin Houston is still not activated and available and is likely out this week. As I said about Schwartz, if Houston is going to miss a couple more games it’s better now than later. I think Houston should be back in the next couple of weeks but I like the Chiefs chances even if he and Charles are out until the Chiefs head to Denver. Houston needs to be ready to go for the divisional games coming up in November and December. If the Chiefs can get him ready to go by then it will help them get past the Broncos and Raiders.
