Chiefs unlikely to have Houston back for Redskins
December 3rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs coach Andy Reid did not sound optimistic that he’ll have leading pass rusher Justin Houston back for next Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins. Houston dislocated his right elbow two weeks ago against San Diego and missed Sunday’s 35-28 loss to Denver, a game in which the Chiefs failed to sack quarterback Peyton Manning. Reid said Monday it would be “quite a feat” if Houston could play in Washington.
Left tackle Branden Albert hyperextended his left knee against the Broncos, while tight end Anthony Fasano sustained a concussion. Reid did not say with any certainty whether either of them will be available against the Redskins. Fasano missed four games earlier this season with an ankle injury.
