Chiefs' Justin Houston posts video that shows he is doing well in ACL recovery

If you're looking to feel better about the Kansas City Chiefs tonight then you came to the right place. Justin Houston has posted a video of him working out. I don't know anything about ACL surgeries but he says this:

Show me someone doing this 7 wks after full ACL and LCL surgery, and I'll show you God's work. I hope y'all watching. #WatchGodWork #FaithB4Fame

With the video posted below. That is awesome. A few reactions first:

1. Wow.

2. LCL surgery? I didn't know that was involved here. There's a lot of things I don't know about this injury.

3. When the Houston injury news came out there was talk that he could miss all of the 2016 season. He responded to that with this tweet and James Harden meme (which was awesome).

Clearly Houston is motivated to come back as soon as he (reasonably) can. The Chiefs need him to do just that. They lost him for five games last year and won all of them but I wouldn't rely on that. He is the Chiefs best pass rusher and a defense that just lost its top corner will need that pass rush. A few games? The Chiefs can handle that. A lot more than that? It's gonna be a tight road back to the playoffs.
