Linebacker Justin Houston and offensive tackle Branden Albert will not play for the Chiefs when they take on the Colts on Sunday. Both players are suffering from injuries and their inactive status is not surprising news.
Houston has missed each of the past three games with a dislocated elbow, and was reportedly able to practice with the first team this week in practice. This season he has 41 tackles and is tied with Tamba Hali for the team high with 11 sacks, while also defending four passes and forcing a fumble.
Albert has missed the past two games after suffering an ugly knee injury against the Broncos in early December. In six years with the Chiefs, he has started 83 of the 85 games he has played in.
The Chiefs have won two straight games without Houston and Albert, but are hoping to get both players back before the postseason.
