Chiefs' Justin Houston doesn't play in the Pro Bowl ... for some reason

Kansas City Chiefs' Justin Houston was at the 2015 Pro Bowl in Arizona on Sunday night. But he didn't play. Why? Just depends on who you ask.

Tamba Hali says Houston didn't play because of his contract situation.

But Houston says ...

Well, this is odd. If his contract is the reason Houston didn't play ... I can certainly understand that. It's potentially a multimillion dollar situation and I can't fault him for protecting that (it's actually probably the most reasonable move). I can also understand Houston not wanting folks to think he's not sitting out because of his contract. Fair enough.

If he knew he wasn't going to play, he probably should've given his spot to someone else. But maybe he is truly sick.

So ... I don't know.
