Justin Houston, Mike DeVito ruled out of Chargers-Chiefs game

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without LB Justin Houston for the second consecutive game as he continues to get over his hyperextended knee. I don't know what his timeline is but there's hope each week that he'll play.

Seems like a good bet that this means more snaps for Dee Ford once again and perhaps Frank Zombo. Ford had some issues last week but was involved in one of the game's biggest plays.

DE Mike DeVito, S Husain Abdullah and WR De'Anthony Thomas are all dealing with concussions. It seems most of the Chiefs concussed players have missed multiple weeks, which isn't a bad thing.

As for the Chargers, they'll be missing their top run defender Corey Liuget.

The Chiefs ran well on the Chargers last time around. That was Spencer Ware's breakout game where he replaced Charcandrick West and ran for 96 yards in the second half.
