Report: Chiefs LB Justin Houston hasn't been cleared to play Sunday
After suffering some kind of head injury last week, Justin Houston's availability this week is unknown.
That’s because he’s dealing with a possible concussion, and though he’s been cleared to practice -- and did so on a limited basis on Thursday -- the team isn’t sure if he’ll be cleared to play Sunday vs. the Raiders, according to ESPN.com.
Houston has 8.5 sacks on the season, just behind Robert Mathis’ league-leading 9.5, but he reportedly took a shot to the head last week vs. the Titans. Houston didn’t practice Wednesday, and though he reportedly hasn’t shown any signs of a concussion, the team is being cautious with him.
Certainly, the Chiefs would miss Houston, but Kansas City also has one of the best front-sevens in the league, so his absence probably wouldn’t be too profound. If Houston can’t play, look for Frank Zombo to take his place in the lineup.
