Draft Scout *Justin Houston News
10/12/16 - OLB Justin Houston (knee) has been cleared to begin football activities in his rehab from February surgery on his left ACL. But he must remain on the physically-unable-to-perform list this week before he can return to the practice field.
10/05/16 - OLB Justin Houston (knee) and his status for the 2016 season could gain some clarity this week with a scheduled checkup he has with orthopedic surgeon to the sports stars, Dr. James Andrews. Houston sustained a knee injury against Buffalo on Nov. 29, 2015. He was hit on the left knee by a teammate on a play at the four-minute mark of the first quarter and did not return to the field that day. He missed the last five regular season games. Houston was in the starting lineup against the Texans in the wild-card game and was on the field for 44 of 64 plays, but played just eight of 58 defensive snaps the following week versus New England. That was the last time Houston was seen on the field of play. After originally believing there was no problem with his ACL in late 2015, Houston underwent surgery on Feb. 16 - not because the ligament was torn, but was inactive and not functioning properly, according to Dr. Andrews. Placed on the physically unable to perform list on Aug. 30, Houston can practice as early as Oct. 24 and the Chiefs would then have 21 days to evaluate whether he's ready to play. Kansas City can only hope the news is positive as the Chiefs have five sacks in four games and are tied for 28th in sacks on the season.
08/30/16 - OLB Justin Houston was placed on the physically unable to perform list on Tuesday as he recovers from a knee injury. Houston, who must sit out the first six games this season, led the league with 22 sacks in 2014 before a knee injury limited him to just 11 contests the following year. The 27-yar-old finished the 2015 campaign with 30 tackles, 7.5 sacks and two interceptions. Houston underwent knee surgery to repair his non-functioning ACL in February and is expected to meet with Dr. James Andrews during Kansas City's bye week in early October for further evaluation.
08/12/16 - OLB Justin Houston (knee) and his status for the 2016 season remain unknown as the Chiefs head for their first preseason game on Saturday. "In the next couple of weeks we can get a more accurate feel for where he is and where his deadline is or target date would be,'' said K.C. general manager John Dorsey. "I don't think you want to just throw an arbitrary date out there. I think you want to watch him move, watch him do all his things and then get the feedback from the medical experts and the trainers ... Who knows? You give me a couple of weeks and I can give you a little bit more definitive answer."
07/31/16 - OLB Justin Houston is in camp with the Chiefs at Missouri Western State University, but he's on the physically unable to perform list as he continues rehab from late February knee surgery. Head coach Andy Reid said Houston will not participate in any preseason activity. "We'll just see how it goes, between the doctors, they'll let me know and Justin and we will try and keep open communication with all parties here and just make sure he's safe to go out and play when and if that time comes about," said Reid.
