Chiefs' Justin Houston: Won't be ready for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston (knee) won't be ready for the start of next month's training camp, ESPN.com reports.

The Chiefs still do not have a concrete timetable outlined for Houston, who underwent ACL surgery in February, though GM John Dorsey maintains that the linebacker will play for the team at some point this coming season. With that in mind, Dorsey noted of Houston, "I don't know how much he's going to do in camp. But, listen, he's where he needs to be right now and he's a hard worker. He's bound and determined to get back. We'll just see how it works out. There is no timetable. It's just when he's right, he's right and we'll roll." Houston, who racked up 22 sacks in 2014, is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 30 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 11 games.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Will be at mandatory minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston (knee) will reportedly be at Chiefs' mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, although he isn't likely to practice, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

Houston is still recovering from ACL surgery that took place back in February. He was given a recovery timetable of 6-12 months but the has assured that he'll play in the 2016 season. While it is highly unlikely he'll take part in any drills this week, his presence at minicamp is a step in the right direction.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Will play next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Houston (knee) will play in the 2016-17 season according to GM John Dorsey, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Houston went through ACL surgery back in February and was given a recovery timetable ranging from 6-12 months. The linebacker did not tear his ACL, but instead it was revealed that his ACL was not function properly. The 27-year-old missed the final five games of the regular season and saw limited action during the playoffs. Dorsey did not confirm a timetable for Houston's return or if he would be ready in time for the regular-season opener, but more information will arise as the Kansas City Chiefs begin training camp this summer.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Out for 6-12 Months
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Houston (knee) was given a recovery timetable of 6-12 months after having ACL surgery in February, the Kansas City Star reports.

Although the ligament wasn't torn, a scope on Houston's knee revealed that his ACL was not functioning properly. This could actually be trickier than a clean tear, as evidenced by the wide range given for his recovery period. Initially diagnosed with a PCL injury in late November, the 27-year-old Houston missed the final five games of the regular season and was very limited in Kansas City's two playoff contests. He's now highly uncertain to be ready for Week 1, which could allow 2014 first-round selection Dee Ford to operate in a full-time/three-down role. If Houston were to miss most or all of the 2016 season, it would be a massive blow to the Kansas City defense.

Chiefs' Justin Houston: Sees slight drop off in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin 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 Kansas City Chiefs ' linebacking corps in 2016, and should be a candidate to reach double-digit sacks once again.
