McCluster likely to play; Houston 50-50
By Adam Teicher
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Two of the four injured Kansas City Chiefs players who sat out last week are likely to return for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Wide receiver Dexter McCluster (ankle) and tight end Anthony Fasano (concussion) are listed as likely to play when the Chiefs issue their injury report.
Things are less certain for two other injured starters, linebacker Justin Houston (elbow) and left tackle Branden Albert. Both are listed as having a 50-50 chance to play.
"It would be a stretch for them to make it," coach Andy Reid said.
Houston appears to have the best chance of being available against the Colts. Wearing a brace on the right elbow that was dislocated on Nov. 24, Houston received some work with the starters and hit a blocking sled in practice.
"He did some good things," Reid said. "He moved around well. He looked better than he did last week. We'll make a decision later on it."
