Two straight days of limited practice participation indicates that Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston could return to action in Week 16 against Indianapolis after missing the last three with an elbow injury.
The waiving of Chad Hall on Thursday likely signaled a return to action for Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster, ESPN has speculated. Hall had served as a replacement for McCluster, who was inactive for the game Sunday at Oakland with an infected ankle.
Chiefs tight end Sean McGrath stepped up with a touchdown in the absence of Anthony Fasano during Sunday's blowout win over the Raiders in Week 15.
McGrath caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith in the third quarter. It was his second touchdown of the season. He caught all two of his targeted passes for 14 yards and a touchdown in a 65-31 victory. Five of his 25 catches have come over the last three games.
