Chiefs vs. Texans: Brian Cushing's Getting Comfortable, Jacoby Jones Could Return

Here are a couple of updates on Houston Texans players for the Kansas City Chiefs game.

First up is LB Brian Cushing. He's actually not returning -- he did that last week against the New York Giants -- but it's just his second game back since a four-game suspension to kick off the season.

"I think you're going to only see him get better, but he played pretty darn good," coach Gary Kubiak said. "Hopefully, his body is just reacting (Wednesday) to his first time out."

Todd Haley was pretty impressed with Cushing earlier this week calling him a complete linebacker.

The next player is WR Jacoby Jones. He's been out with an injury and may return against the Chiefs. His big success this week actually doing some running.

"Jacoby is the same," coach Gary Kubiak said. "Now, I did watch Jacoby run today; it was encouraging, so we'll see. Everybody else, just some soreness and trying to get some guys back healthy."

Jones is yet another weapon in a weapon-loaded offense. It'd be nice if the Chiefs didn't have to worry about that.

The Texans have quite a few names on their injury report but it sounds like most will play.
