Chiefs vs. Texans: Justin Houston is practicing, Jeremy Maclin is not

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs will be lining up for practice on Tuesday with Justin Houston. They will be without Jeremy Maclin.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid updated the media on Tuesday:

Andy Reid pretty much said already that Justin Houston would be playing this weekend so count on him. As for Maclin, he also said he plans on playing this weekend despite his hip injury last weekend so I wouldn't worry about that one too much yet.

Mitch Morse's concussion is a bit of a concern. A number of Chiefs have missed multiple weeks with a concussion. If he can't go, the Chiefs would presumably have Zach Fulton there.

Dee Ford is in the concussion protocol as well. He went to the team after the game with symptoms so he will have to pass that. All concussions are different but based on how the Chiefs have handled them with other players this season it would not be a surprise to see Ford miss this game. We'll just have to see how the week goes.

Tamba Hali regularly rests on Wednesday, although he is still dealing with that thumb injury.

Abdullah recently lost his father. Will be thinking about him.
