The Kansas City Chiefs are hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday and they'll do so without DE Mike DeVito, who has been ruled out with a concussion. WR Jeremy Maclin also had a concussion but he returned to practice on Friday and is listed as questionable. It sounds like the Chiefs are expecting him to play so that's good news for the Chiefs passing game.

Also questionable is LB Tamba Hali, NT Dontari Poe and LB Josh Mauga. If Hali doesn't play, it would be a chance for the Chiefs to see more of Dee Ford, who has only been in spot-duty for the Chiefs so far this season. I kind of want to see him in a full-time role to see what he can because he could be the guy next year.

QB Alex Smith and LB Justin Houston were both listed on the injury report this week but they were probable so expect them to play. The same goes for K Cairo Santos, who was listed with an injury on his kicking foot but is probable for the game.
