Justin Houston injures knee in Bills-Chiefs game, goes to locker room

New, comments

Justin Houston was injured in the first quarter of the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Buffalo Bills. He headed to the locker room where he was ruled questionable to return with a knee injury.

Former NFL team doctor David Chao speculates via the video that it's a hyperextension.

Houston was running to break up a pass that went by him when Chiefs safety Ron Parker accidentally leg whipped Houston right around the knee area. It looked like there was solid contact as Houston's leg straightened up, almost like it was hyper-extended. The trainers came out to the field and he came out of the game without putting much pressure on his left leg.

The Chiefs are without Dee Ford due to injury so Frank Zombo came into the game to replace Houston, who went to the locker room after the injury.

UPDATE: Seems like good news...
