    Chiefs' Justin Houston (elbow) could miss 2 to 3 weeks


    Marc Sessler
    Around the League Writer


    What's different about Broncos vs. Chiefs?
    The Kansas City Chiefs have a better idea about when they'll have Justin Houston back in the lineup.


    NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the Chiefs' premier pass rusher won't need surgery, but could miss two to three weeks with the dislocated elbow he suffered in Sunday's loss to the San Diego Chargers, according to a pair of sources informed of the MRI results.


    Testing revealed the presence of sprained ligaments and torn muscles in the elbow, but the timeline is better news than some expected after swelling prevented the outside linebacker from undergoing an MRI earlier in the week.


    With Houston's fellow edge rusher Tamba Hali battling a "slight" ankle sprain, the Chiefs won't badger quarterbacks to the same degree, but both should be fully operational before long.


    A three-week absence for Houston would leave Kansas City vulnerable this Sunday against the Denver Broncos, but the following two weeks bring the beatable Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders. The Chiefs -- even with Houston and Hali in the fold -- haven't rushed the passer as effectively over the past month, but this remains the AFC's most dangerous duo of outside linebackers.


    The latest "Around The League Podcast" previewed all three of the big Thanksgiving games on the schedule.

    Did our Offensive line suddenly turn into the Berlin Wall?

    Did Alex Smith suddenly discover his inner Joe Montana?

    Did San Diego's pass defenders sleep through the game?

    Did Andy Reid call his very best offensive plays of the season?

    Looking at San Diego's schedule, I see that prior to the game against our Chiefs, San Diego had allowed an average of 21.6 points per game and the most they had allowed in the 10 games before the Chief's game was 31 points and that the most points San Diego had allowed since September 15 was 28 points. Since September 15 they had allowed an average of just 19.4 points per game. So how in hell did our Offense score 25% more points against San Diego than anyone else had? How did our Offense score TWICE AS MANY POINTS as the average San Diego had allowed for the last 8 games?

    Can somebody explain to me how our Offense put up 38 points against a team that while no defensive powerhouse, has certainly not had a defense made of swiss cheese?

    Most importantly, was our offensive performance against San Diego something we are going to be able to replicate for the rest of the season?
    That's the big question, I think. It's also why Denver is touting the return of Champ Bailey so much, rattle our cage and try and pump their fans up. But I also think that if you were to rewind back to the first Broncos game and if the recievers had made the receptions like they made during the SD game, you'd have a different outcome.

    I'm much more concerned with the crossing patterns that ripped our D than our offense. What will Manning's version of a crossing pattern look like, given the short amount of time he hangs onto the ball? Will Denver fake like they're running a crossing pattern and rip us doing something else?

    Win or lose I'd like to see Arrowhead just drown Manning in noise - Just like we did with his little brother, and negate their running game. Losing Houston and a questionable Hali sucks, but if Zombo and Moses are chomping at the bit to make a name for themselves, that might not be a bad thing either.

    Completely agree. We've seen a LOT of backups around the NFL really step up and make a difference this year and from a career point of view this would be a HUGE game for our backups to step up and make a statement. If they can play at a high level and if our Offense can play like they did against San Diego we should be able to put a real hurt on the donkeys. I'm REALLY hoping our Offense can look as good tomorrow as they did against San Diego.

    While I hate having lost that game the performance of the Offense was VERY encouraging. Hoping we see more of it down the homestretch.

    I hope you're right. I'm merely pointing out that we have NOT been guaranteed a spot anywhere in the post season as of yet. We have lost two of our last three games at home, and I just don't see our schedule getting much easier from here.

    Well, I am hopeful that we can get the win at Oakland and Washington but anyone believing the schedule to be easy at San Diego, in spite of their record, or at home vs. the Colts are only fooling themselves IMO.

    Agreed. We've got our work cut out for us if we hope to keep pace with the stinkin' donks.

    To be honest, I really don't believe it comes down to keeping pace with the Donkeys anymore. The main objective should be to try to capture the #5 seed as the Chiefs probably have already conceded the AFC West title to the Donkeys by losing twice to them. The Donkeys probably won't lose another game the rest of the season, as they don't play anybody.
