Chiefs' Justin Houston: Notches six tackles in divisional-round loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston capped off his 2016 season Sunday with six tackles (five solo) in a divisional-round loss to the Steelers.

Houston missed the team's final two regular-season games due to injury, but was deemed healthy enough to give it a go in the team's first playoff game. While he did record six tackles, the 28-year-old pass rusher was unable to get to Ben Roethlisberger in the contest and finishes his injury-shortened 2016 campaign with just four sacks over six games (including the playoffs). He remains under contract with the Chiefs for another four years, but has played just 16 games combined in the last two seasons. The Georgia product may be a somewhat risky proposition in terms of health, but his injury history could make him a high-value IDP option in 2017 if he can play the entire season.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

The veteran linebacker will take the field Sunday against the Steelers after missing the final two games of the regular season. He may see his reps monitored more than usual in the return. If that is the case, expect Dee Ford to see a slight uptick in defensive snaps.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

According to head coach Andy Reid, Houston (knee) is ready to return to practice ahead of Sunday's divisional round game against the Steelers.

Houston missed Kansas City's final two regular season games due to swelling in his surgically repaired right knee, which prevented him from making his season debut until Week 11. While the Chiefs are unfortunately accustomed to playing without Houston this season, his four sacks in five games played evidences the dynamic threat he still poses, so the team will certainly welcome him back with open arms to start practice this week. How Houston's knee responds to his return remains to be seen, though, so his situation will have to continue to be monitored over the coming days.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Will be available for playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to head coach Andy Reid, Houston (knee) will be available for the divisional round matchup next weekend, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Houston has been absent from the Chiefs' last two games due to swelling in his surgically repaired right knee. However, the veteran should be available in some capacity for the team's playoff push, bolstering an already impressive defense. Look for updates to come during practice next week when the team releases their injury reports.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: "Day-to-day" with knee inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston (knee) is dealing with swelling in his surgically-repaired right knee, The Kansas City Star reports.

Head coach Andy Reid declined to elaborate upon Houston's status further than stating the linebacker is "day-to-day" with inflammation in his right knee. While Houston isn't a lock to miss an extended period of time, Reid also failed to shoot down such a notion, making it appear possible that the Chiefs could be without their star edge rusher for postseason play.
