Houston's absence from Friday's practice caused worries about his health, but it likely was just a maintenance day. Although he's averaging under five tackles per game, Houston has racked up 7.5 sacks through eight games. He'll have a tough task pressuring Dak Prescott, who has been sacked on just 3.8 percent of his dropbacks, ranking seventh in the league.
Houston (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Houston was held out of practice Friday, but there's a legitimate chance his absence was merely maintenance-related. He was also listed questionable prior to the Week 8 game against the Broncos and went on to play and match his season high with two sacks.
Although Houston was unable to participate in Saturday's practice, the team remained hopeful he would be able to play Monday. He has validated their optimism, and he will presumably take on a full workload assuming he avoids any setbacks.
Houston (knee) did not practice Saturday but is still expected to play in Monday's contest, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Despite his absence from practice, all reports indicate he's trending towards playing Monday. Without Houston, Kansas City lacks a strong pass rush which could help set things in motion for Denver's offense. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, however, Houston should be ready for Monday's contest.
