Chiefs injury update: Justin Houston sits out while Mitch Morse and Allen Bailey return to practice

The good news is that C Mitch Morse and DE Allen Bailey appear to be making progress. The bad news is that LB Justin Houston remains out of Wednesday's practice, the first one of the week as the Chiefs prepare for San Diego Chargers this weekend.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid regularly gives Tamba Hali time off during the week so I wouldn't look too much into that. Meanwhile, S Husain Abdullah, DE Mike DeVito and WR De'Anthony Thomas are dealing with concussions.

The Chiefs CAN deal with any of these injuries but the big one here would be Houston. It would be very helpful if he were on the field to go against Chargers QB Philip Rivers. That he's not practicing on Wednesday doesn't necessarily mean he won't play but you do wonder if the Chiefs are going to give him another week to get over that hyperextended knee.
