Houston (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Houston's absence from Friday's practice caused worries for his health, but it was likely just a maintenance day. Although he's averaging under five tackles per game, Houston has racked up 7.5 sacks through eight games, but he'll have a tough task pressuring Dak Prescott, who has been sacked on just 3.8 percent of his dropbacks, ranking seventh in the league.

Houston (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Houston was held out of practice Friday, but there's a legitimate chance his absence was merely maintenance-related. He was also listed questionable prior to last week's game against the Broncos and went on to match his season-high two sacks.

Houston recorded two sacks in Monday night's victory over the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Houston upped his sack total on the season to 7.5 with his pair on Monday. All-in-all, he logged six tackles (five) solo on the day. He will look to carry that momentum into the Chiefs' Week 9 game versus the Cowboys.

Houston (knee) is will play Monday against the Broncos, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Houston was unable to participate in Saturday's practice, the team remained hopeful he would be able to play Monday. He has validated their optimism, and will presumably take on a full workload assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Houston (knee) did not practice Saturday but is still expected to play in Monday's contest, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite his absence from practice, all reports indicate he's trending towards playing Monday. Without Houston, Kansas City lacks a strong pass rush which could help set things in motion for Denver's offense. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, however, Houston should be ready for Monday's contest.

Houston has a knee injury and was a limited participant at the Chiefs practice Friday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Houston was limited Thursday as well, but isn't expected to be in danger of missing Monday's game, unless it is otherwise indicated by the team. The 28-year-old has been on the injury report for a variety of issues this season, but has yet to miss a game.

Houston (calf) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Steelers, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Houston was limited in practice Friday and sitting out early in the week. The Chiefs are likely just being cautious with their star outside linebacker, who looks ready to go for Sunday's matchup with the Steelers.

Houston (calf) didn't practice Wednesday and is questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

After posting 1.5 sacks against the Texans in Week 5, Houston surprisingly appeared on the injury report Wednesday. It's unclear when this injury was sustained, so his availability for Week 6 is up in the air as well. Regardless, he'll likely need a full practice in order to suit up Sunday.

Houston recorded three tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks Sunday against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Houston was held without a sack for the first time of the season in Week 4, but he got back to his normal self against the Texans. His numbers haven't been explosive this year, with just 22 tackles (18 solo) through five games, but the fact that he's added 5.5 sacks, three pass breakups and a touchdown off a fumble recovery has helped spring him into fantasy relevance.

Houston collected three tackles (all solo) during Monday's game against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Houston remains a dominant pass-rusher for the Chiefs, despite not contributing with a sack. He did find pay dirt on Washington's last play of the night, however, picking up an errant lateral and taking it to the house with no time on the clock. He should have a good opportunity to get back on the board in the sacks column next week against a Houston offensive line tied for the most allowed in the league.
