Houston had five tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Thursday's loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Houston has been heavily active with 11 total tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble over the last two games, and he played all but seven defensive snaps Thursday. Week 16 has a matchup with the run-heavy Seahawks on tap, as Houston has 6.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and an interception in 10 games.

Houston had four tackles (all solo), a sack and a forced fumble in Monday's 54-51 loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Houston jarred the ball loose from Rams quarterback Jared Goff in the fourth quarter, and teammate Allen Bailey then returned the fumble for a touchdown, though it still wasn't enough to stem the explosion of offenses. Houston has shown to still have playmaking abilities -- he has four sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception in seven games -- but his low tackle total of 16 makes him difficult to rely upon for IDP purposes.

Houston recorded one solo tackle, one pass defended and one interception during Sunday's 26-14 win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Houston was questionable entering Week 10 due to a hamstring injury, but managed to log a full workload and pick off rookie quarterback Josh Rosen. The veteran linebacker remains difficult to trust in IDP formats due to low tackle volume, despite playing a key starting role in Kansas City's defense.

Houston (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Houston has missed the last four games, and he'll look to get back in the saddle against a struggling offense. The veteran linebacker made three sacks in his first five games, and he'll get a juicy matchup against Josh Rosen, who has been dropped 13 times in the last three games.

Houston (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Houston has been limited in practice all week, but expects to suit up against the Cardinals on Sunday according to Adam Teicher of ESPN.com. The starting linebacker has missed four straight games due to a lingering hamstring issue, and his return would be a notable boost the Chiefs' defense. If Houston is able to play Week 10, expect Tanoh Kpassagnon to return to a backup role.

Houston (hamstring) is expected to play against the Cardinals on Sunday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Houston was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, but has reportedly progressed well enough in his recovery from a lingering hamstring injury to suit up Week 10. The starting linebacker has missed four consecutive games due to the hamstring issue, and his return would be a considerable boost to Kansas City's defense. If Houston is indeed able to go Sunday, expect Tanoh Kpassagnon to revert back to a reserve role.

Houston (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Houston has missed four straight games due to a lingering hamstring injury, and his availability for Sunday's tilt against the Cardinals remains up in the air. The starting linebacker may need to log at least one full participation in practice before Kansas City clears him to return to the field. If Houston is unable to go Week 10, expect Tanoh Kpassagnon to receive an uptick in defensive snaps.

Houston (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Houston is set to miss a fourth consecutive game due to a hamstring issue, despite practicing in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday. Breeland Speaks is slated to fill Houston's role at outside linebacker, but the latter could return Week 10 against the Cardinals barring any setbacks.

Houston (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, is considered "very unlikely to play," a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

Houston practiced in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday, but the Chiefs presumably want to see him put in a full session or two before signing off on his return to game action. With the stalwart pass rusher on tap for his fourth consecutive absence, Breeland Speaks will likely handle most of the snaps at outside linebacker opposite Dee Ford.

Houston (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Houston has sat out the last three games with the hamstring issue, but his limited practice participation Thursday and Friday has him trending in the right direction. The 29-year-old is still likely to be a gameday decision given his recent absences, with Tanoh Kpassagnon ready to again start at outside linebacker should Houston be inactive.
