Justin Houston is not ready to practice after his ACL surgery this offseason but he could be in Kansas City for the Chiefs start of the mandatory minicamp this week. Chiefs coach Andy Reid was asked last week if Houston would show up for mandatory minicamp this week - Tuesday through Thursday - even if he’s not practicing.
“I think there is a pretty good chance – yeah, we’ll see,” Reid said via quotes from the Chiefs. “I would say there is a pretty good chance. Will he be out here practicing? No – he can’t do that yet, but he’ll be in town, yeah.”
The Chiefs have said Houston has been in town at times this offseason but he’s also spent time working out on his own. As long as the Chiefs know what type of workouts he’s been doing, I don't see any issue with him doing that work away from the facility. No one is about to question Houston’s work ethic and his drive to come back.
