Chiefs vs. Texans: Dontari Poe has a 'pretty good chance' to play

Sounds like this is happening.

Dontari Poe had back surgery for a herniated disc on July 15 and less than two months later here we sit. Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton talked about managing Poe's reps so I'm not sure we'll see him at his usual self playing every snap. But even a little bit of Poe is very good because it gives the Chiefs more versatility along the defensive line. Jaye Howard, who had been replacing Poe, can rotate in at nose tackle and defensive end if need be.

Should we be concerned about Poe being rushed back? According to one doctor, there is the chance of a set back but not a re-injury.
