KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — It appears the Kansas City Chiefs will be near full strength when they visit the Indianapolis Colts for an AFC wild-card playoff game on Saturday. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was going through the protocol Monday to be cleared from a concussion that he sustained against Indianapolis two weeks ago. Reid also said that linebacker Tamba Hali was progressing from inflammation in his knee.

Linebacker Justin Houston, who’s been out with a dislocated elbow, and left tackle Branden Albert, who’s missed time with a hyperextended knee, are also expected to be back for the Colts. The Chiefs rested most of their starters in a 27-24 overtime loss at San Diego on Sunday
