Chiefs' Justin Houston won't play vs. Ravens; Spencer Ware is questionable

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without LB Justin Houston for the third consecutive game when they visit the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Houston was injured in the Chiefs game against the Bills on November 29 and hasn't seen the field in the two games since then as he continues to recover from his hyperextended knee. There was a report that some fear Houston could miss the rest of the regular season (three more games) but the Chiefs haven't commented on that.

RB Spencer Ware is listed as questionable with the rib injury he suffered last week. Ware did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday but was limited on Friday so there's a little bit of positive momentum there. The Chiefs can get by with RB Charcandrick West on Sunday but they're really at their best when both are running the ball well.

Not playing on Sunday will be WR De'Anthony Thomas and S Husain Abdullah as they have both been ruled out. The DAT concussion has been a few weeks as well and Frankie Hammond has been replacing him on punt returns. Hammond put a couple of balls on the ground last week which has folks concerned about the punt return operation. I'll be curious to see if the Chiefs go back to Hammond in this game.

QB Chase Daniel is a new name to the injury report. Someone apparently stepped on his toe but he should be fine, according to Andy Reid.
