Justin Houston a no-show at mandatory minicamp
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston did not show up for the first day of the team's mandatory minicamp, reports Pro Football Talk. Houston, who also skipped voluntary OTAs, is seeking a big extension as he enters the final year of his contract.

Houston has 26.5 sacks in his three NFL seasons. His absence Monday enabled rookie Dee Ford to take all the first-team snaps.

Dee Ford lands in wrong place for Fantasy
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

When the Chiefs drafted Dee Ford , they took a player at a position they already have two established studs at. Tamba Hali and Justin Houston both play outside linebacker for the Chiefs, precisely the position Ford will play now that he's on their team. 

Coach Andy Reid envisions using Ford as part of a rotation, which isn't a bad way to ease him into professional football. But it stings Fantasy owners because he won't play every down unless something happens to either Hali or Houston. The double whammy is that he'll play outside linebacker instead of defensive end, which means he'll post numbers that aren't as good as other linebackers in the league. Throw in a back injury that had doctors nervous at the combine and it makes for a challenging situation. 

For these reasons, Ford shouldn't be touched in seasonal Fantasy play and has only mild appeal in dynasty/keeper leagues as a late-round pick. Owners in rookie-only drafts might consider Ford with a mid- to late-round pick since they'd aim for using him over the long haul.

Chiefs defense in good shape for playoffs
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali is officially active for Saturday's Wild Card round game against the Colts, despite being listed as questionable on the injury report with a knee injury. Hali sat out the team's final regular season game as a result of the injury as well. 

Hali is joined on the field by fellow injured linebacker Justin Houston (elbow) and defensive back Ron Parker (finger, ankle), both of whom were considered probable for the game.

Chiefs mostly healthy heading into playoff game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali (knee) is listed as questionable for the Saturday playoff clash at Indianapolis. Aside from ruled-out tackle Eric Fisher, he is the lone threat not to play.

The probables are tackle Branden Albert (knee), wideout Dwayne Bowe (concussion), linebacker Justin Houston (elbow), offensive lineman Eric Kush (ankle) and defensive back Ron Parker (finger/ankle).
