Houston, who suffered a nasty elbow injury in the Chiefs loss to the San Diego Chargers last week had attempted to get an MRI completed earlier in the week. Unfortunately, Houston’s the swelling was so bad, the linebacker couldn’t extend his arm and the MRI needed to be delayed until Wednesday.
Team announces MRI results on Justin Houston’s injured elbow are ‘favorable’, and Coach Reid will have a further update on Friday.
Of course, everybody’s definition of ‘favorable’ is different so it will be interesting to see what the Chiefs announce. Both NFL Network and FOX have leaked reports that Houston will only miss 2-3 weeks, which considering the potential for ligament damage would indeed be considered ‘favorable’ considering alternatives could have been season ending.
