Houston did not report to Chiefs' mandatory minicamp Tuesday, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Houston's absence is presumably tied to a desire to re-work his contract. He is currently in the final year of his rookie deal and is in line to make $1.4 million this coming season. His holdout isn't a huge cause for concern unless it carries on into training camp in late July, however. In Houston's absence Tuesday, first-round draft pick Dee Ford handled worked in his place with the Chiefs' first-team defense.
Houston sustained only a PCL strain and bone bruise in his knee during Saturday's Wild Card loss at Indianapolis, FOX Sports reports.

Houston left Saturday's playoff game with what appeared to be some sort of knee/leg injury, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Chiefs have been absolutely ravished by injuries during Saturday's game, with Houston the most recent player to go down. He was injured late in the fourth quarter, after missing the previous five games with a dislocated elbow. Prior to exiting, Houston registered four tackles (three solo), a sack, a fumble recovery, and three quarterback hits.
Houston (elbow) is active for Saturday's game against the Colts, Reid Ferrin of Chiefs.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After missing the final five games of the regular season, Houston is poised to make his return. His presence should provide a huge boost to the Kansas City pass rush, as Houston finished with 11 sacks in 11 games this season, after racking up 10 sacks in 2012.
Houston (elbow) is listed as probable for Saturday's playoff game against the Colts.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Houston recorded 10 sacks last season and is expected to start at outside linebacker for the Chiefs in 2013.

2012

Houston came on very strong late in his rookie year, notching 24 total tackles and 5.5 sacks in the team's final five games. He has tremendous burst coming around the edge as a pass-rushing outside linebacker and could be in line for a major breakout playing opposite Pro Bowler Tamba Hali. Opposing offenses will simply not be able to devote as much attention to him as Hali, and in leagues that reward heavily for sacks, Houston could emerge as a productive IDP option.

2011

A sack specialist in college, Houston projects as a situational pass rusher in his rookie season, as he must adjust to his linebacker role in the 3-4 defense before he can play more downs without being a liability. His upside is high, but after a lockout-shortened offseason and a brief contract holdout, he is behind in his development and not likely to contribute much in 2011.
