Chiefs injury report: Justin Houston ruled out, Tamba Hali questionable

The Kansas City Chiefs injury report for Denver Broncos week is highlighted by Justin Houston being ruled out and Tamba Hali listed as questionable.

Out: S Sanders Commings, LB Justin Houston

Both are officially OUT for the game. Houston has the dislocated elbow, It's been reported he could miss multiple weeks with the injury. The Chiefs trainer said he is "truly week-to-week". Frank Zombo will be the pass rusher in his place (assuming Tamba Hali can go, which not necessarily a safe assumption). Commings has a shoulder injury and didn't practice all week.

Questionable: G Jon Asamoah, DE Mike DeVito, OT Eric Fisher, LB Tamba Hali

These are four starters so they're all obviously important. Hali is at the top of the list. He has a sprained ankle. Can he play? That's arguably the biggest question entering this game. He says he plans on playing so I'm hoping he does. With Houston already out, the Chiefs need Tamba badly.

Mile High Report: Broncos injury report

Asamoah, DeVito and Fisher all missed time last week with injuries. Asamoah and Fisher were limited participants in practice so it would appear they have a shot. DeVito did not practice on Wednesday or Friday. However, missing Friday's practice was for personal reasons, according to Andy Reid, and they're "all positive". So maybe he can go on Sunday?

Probable: G Jeff Allen, DE Mike Catapano, DE Tyson Jackson, FB Anthony Sherman

All four of these players should play. Three of them are starters so that's good.
