There was a bit of panic on Wednesday when it was reported that Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston was visiting Dr. James Andrews about his knee injury, which the Chiefs had called a hyperextended knee.
Did this mean something had changed? Is Houston out for the rest of the season? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!
The Chiefs say it is still a hyperextended knee and there is no reason to be alarmed.
#Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder: "I can confirm that (Houston) was at Dr Andrews yesterday." 2nd opinion. Not uncommon. "Getting better."— Danny Parkins (@DannyParkins) December 17, 2015
Burkholder: "We're moving forward with it being a hyperextended knee...no reason to be alarmed." (On Houston)— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) December 17, 2015
Burkholder: "I don't want anybody to be alarmed that he saw Dr. Andrews. We knew it, we're good with it." Says knee swelling is down.— Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) December 17, 2015
The NFL Network report stated that there is a fear that Houston could miss the rest of the regular season. The Chiefs did not say that but we have three weeks left in the regular season and Houston is not practicing so it doesn't seem like a stretch.
