Justin Houston is officially questionable for the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos Monday Night Football game. However, Chiefs coach Andy Reid was optimistic about his outlook for the game.
“He’s going to be fine, he had that knee surgery and we’re just monitoring him as we go here,” Reid told reporters on Saturday. “I gave him some time to just settle, but I think he’ll be fine.”
You hear injury and Justin Houston and you freak out a little bit because of his history. He’s missed portions of three of the past four seasons due to injury. The Chiefs pass rush isn’t very good right now so they can’t afford to lose Houston for any games.
The other notable injury is G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif who is also questionable. C Mitch Morse is expected back for this game but we’re not sure yet if LDT will be back. I’m also not sure what they would do if he doesn’t play - continue playing Cam Erving there or try someone like Zach Fulton?
The other Chiefs on the injury report this week, like Charcandrick West and Albert Wilson, should be good to go.
On the Broncos side, DT Derek Wolfe and WR Emmanuel Sanders are both listed as questionable.
