    Chiefs' Justin Houston: Sees slight drop off in 2015

    Houston finished the 2015 regular season with 7.5 sacks, 25 tackles and two interceptions,. While Houston was unable to reach double-digits in sacks for the first time in the past four seasons, much of that can be attributed to a knee injury that kept him out of five contests. Finishing just the first year of a six-year, $101 million contract, Houston will once again serve among the Chiefs' linebacking corps in 2016, and should be a candidate to reach double-digit sacks once again.

    Chiefs' Justin Houston: Active Saturday

    Houston (knee) is listed as active Saturday at New England, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Absent from the final five games of the regular season due to a hyperextended right knee, Houston was a shell of himself in the wild-card round, notching three tackles (two solo) against the Texans. His activity level during the week doesn't improve his stock much -- limited showings Wednesday and Thursday, followed by a DNP on Friday -- but the pass rusher will be out there opposite Tamba Hali (knee/thumb).

    Chiefs' Justin Houston: Questionable to play Pats

    Houston (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Patriots. Houston missed the final five regular season games due to a hyperextended knee, and although he returned to make three tackles (two solo) in last weekend's playoff win over the Texans, Houston's status remains on the fence for Saturday's upcoming kickoff. The Chiefs' star pass-rusher would likely don a knee brace once again if he plays Saturday, but with teammate Tamba Hali (thumb) also questionable, Kansas City's outside linebacking tandem is certainly banged-up.

    Chiefs' Justin Houston: Active Saturday

    Houston (knee) is active for Saturday's Wild Card game in Houston, BJ Kissell of the Chiefs' official site reports. Houston used the final five games of the season to rehab a hyperextended right knee, but full practices dominated his week, implying that he's nearing 100 percent. No matter, James Palmer of NFL Network suggested on Saturday morning that Houston could be limited in the playoff opener, which would reduce his potential pass-rushing opportunities.

    Chiefs' Justin Houston: Possibly limited Saturday with knee injury

    Houston (knee) will play in Saturday's game against the Texans, but could be limited, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Houston has been a full participant in practice for the last week, so any concerns of limitations shouldn't be too severe. Even if he isn't quite 100 percent, he should still be a strong tool against a Texans offensive line that ranks in the middle of the pack in sacks allowed.

    Chiefs' Justin Houston: Probable to play Texans

    Houston (knee) is listed as probable for Saturday's playoff tilt against the Texans. Houston is expected to make his first appearance since Nov. 29, when a hyperextended left knee put him on the shelf. Coming off a full week of practice, Houston represents a big boost to the Chiefs' defensive front.

    Chiefs' Justin Houston: On track to return this week

    Houston (knee) practiced fully Wednesday. Houston's full practice participation supports the notion put forth by the linebacker earlier this week that he'll take the field Saturday against the Texans. Houston -- who is bouncing back from a hyperextended left knee -- last played on Nov. 29. Prior to that, he recorded 30 tackles, 7.5 sacks and two picks in 11 games.

    Chiefs' Justin Houston: Practicing Tuesday

    Houston (knee) will practice Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports. Houston hasn't played since Week 12 while recovering from a hyperextended left knee. However, he made it back to practice as a limited participant Friday, setting him up for a return in the opening round of the playoffs. Houston seems more likely than not to suit up against the Texans, but it's entirely possible he'll be limited in terms of snap count and/or effectiveness. His primary matchup would likely be against RT Derek Newton, who Houston unsurprisingly got the best of back in Week 1.

    Chiefs' Justin Houston: Day-to-day

    Houston (knee) is considered day-to-day as the Chiefs begin their postseason preparations this week, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports. Houston hasn't played since late November, but is apparently edging toward a return ahead of Saturday's playoff game against the Texans. Considering the Chiefs' injuries to fellow outside linebackers Dee Ford (concussion) and Tamba Hali (thumb), the timing of Houston's potential return appears opportune.
