Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston was finally able to get an MRI on the elbow he dislocated against the Chargers last weekend and the results look like a good news/bad news situation.

We’ll start with the good news. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Houston will not need to have surgery on his elbow which likely would have brought his season to an end.

The bad news is that the team will still likely have to play without him for the next 2-3 weeks because he sprained some ligaments and tore muscles when his elbow popped out of place. The Chiefs have a major AFC West showdown with the Broncos this weekend, hardly a moment when you want to have your pass rush compromised.

It doesn’t appear Kansas City will avoid that fate, though. Tamba Hali is a better bet to play, but he’s coming off a sprained ankle and the Chiefs pass rush had been flagging in recent weeks even with both players in the lineup.

    No big deal, he’s almost as overrated as LaBamba Hali.

    We love you Justin. Please heal up fast. You are the man in K.C.

    The Chiefs should take a look at Chris McCoy a really good pass rushing outside linebacker who played great in the preseason for the Eagles.

    if his first name isn’t LeSean, then they aren’t interested.

    Why is it that douchey Denver fans are constantly flapping their gums in every comment section of every Chiefs article? You have officially become the most obnoxious fans in all of sports. Congrats! Happy Thanksgiving

    Joe isn’t a Broncos fan, he loves the Raiders & talks bad about every team in the AFC West even tho his team has been buried below .500 for years.

    Actually the number is 11 years. 11 years below .500

    In fact I do believe all the other other teams have won the division multiple time since the Raiders have been higher than the bottom two.
