The Chiefs announced Tuesday that OLB Justin Houston will begin the regular season on the PUP, meaning he'll miss at least the 1st 6 games. That's no surprise after he missed the entire offseason and training camp following February ACL surgery. Houston's continued absence does mean that you should be aware of the downside to the Chiefs' D. The other starting OLB, Tamba Hali, sat out most of camp on the PUP list as well with a knee issue. He's back for the regular season, but it's fair to wonder how much the soon-to-be 33-year-old has left. Dee Ford started in Houston's spot in the 3rd preseason game, with Frank Zombo still filling in for Hali. Look for a rotation in the regular season -- one that will be missing 1 of the league's top pass rushers.
The Ravens have reached a 1-year deal with EDGE Justin Houston. The veteran spent the past 2 years with the Colts, tallying 19 sacks. He should be in for a starting role on a Baltimore defense that let Matt Judon walk in free agency. The move to Baltimore will likely change his position designation from DE to LB on many fantasy-league hosting sites.
Colts DE Justin Houston (hip) and DL Denico Autry (ankle, knee) are active for today’s game against the Bengals. Each had an odd practice week. Houston sat out Wednesday and Friday, with a limited practice in between. Autry missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but returned to a full Friday workout. They face a Cincinnati offense that has allowed the league’s most sacks. That upside makes Houston and Autry worth the risk for IDP lineups … at their appropriate levels. Check our updated Week 6 DL rankings.
Colts DE Justin Houston is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He missed practice Thursday and Friday with a calf injury and doesn't look like a good bet for IDP lineups this weekend. We'll update his status Sunday morning.
Colts DE Justin Houston is questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh. He suffered a calf injury in Thursday's practice that then kept him out Friday. We'll need to watch Houston's status Sunday morning. S Malik Hooker is also questionable. He returned last week after missing 3 games with a knee injury. Hooker opened this practice week on the field but then was limited Thursday and sat out Friday, again with a knee issue. He hasn't been much of an IDP option even when healthy, at least. His previous replacement, Khari Willis, looks ready to go if Hooker sits.
Colts DE Justin Houston is active for today's game against the Texans. He turned up questionable after a calf injury kept him out of practice Thursday and Friday. But there's too much upside against a Houston offense missing RT Tytus Howard to leave this guy on your IDP bench.
