Anthony Hitchens will play against Browns; Justin Houston is out

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Early word from FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland is that Justin Houston will be inactive for the Kansas City Chiefs today against the Cleveland Browns.

This is not unexpected. Houston was listed as questionable on the week’s final injury report, which was issued on Friday, Houston did practice on both Thursday and Friday, but was limited due to his hamstring injury.

Anthony Hitchens — who suffered a painful rib contusion against the Broncos — was also listed as questionable on Friday. He was also limited in practice on both Thursday and Friday, but does not appear on the inactives list for today’s game.

Frank Zombo — also injured against Denver — is listed as inactive today.

Here’s the complete list of the Chiefs inactives for the game.

Except for Hitchens seeing the field today, this is about what we would have expected. Mitch Morse is still in concussion protocol, Eric Berry was listed as doubtful for the game, and Darrel Williams, Kahlil McKenzie and Justin Hamilton have been healthy scratches in recent weeks.
