Chiefs injury report: Justin Houston, Branden Albert are questionable

It's Friday and we don't know yet if Justin Houston and Branden Albert will be playing in the Colts-Chiefs game at Arrowhead this weekend. Both players are listed as questionable.

Branden Albert and Justin Houston are questionable for Sunday's Colts-Chiefs game while Dexter McCluster is probable, Andy Reid told reporters on Friday. Judging by Reid's comments on Friday, they may have to play the Colts without Albert and Houston.

As for everyone else...

That means Dexter McCluster, who missed last week with a foot infection, is likely to play. As is Anthony Fasano and Eric Fisher, who have both been banged up lately. Fasano has missed the last two games after his concussion.
