Draft Scout *Justin Houston News
10/27/14 - OLB Justin Houston's three sacks led the Chiefs' defensive effort in a 34-7 victory over St. Louis. Overall, the Chiefs took Rams quarterback Austin Davis down seven times. Those three sacks now give Houston 10 on the season. That's halfway to the franchise record of 20 sacks by Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas in 1990.
It's also where he was last season after seven games. Injuries sidelined Houston for most of the second half of the 2013 schedule and he had just 11 sacks when it was all said and done.
That he's back at that number with a chance for more if he stays healthy comes at a very good time for Houston. His contract expires at the end of the 2014 season, and he could become an unrestricted free agent. He could also become the Chiefs' franchise player, a move that would hold him out of free agency and under contract for another season.
10/26/14 - OLB Justin Houston had three sacks in Sunday's game, giving him 10 on the season and 36.5 in his career. In just his fourth season, he is already in the Chiefs' top-10 list of sackers. Against St. Louis, Houston's sacks helped him jump ahead of DE Wilbur Young (35).
