Chiefs rule out Justin Houston, Branden Albert vs. Redskins

The Kansas City Chiefs will be looking to bounce back from a three-game losing streak on Sunday, when they take on the struggling Washington Redskins in a Week 14 match up. The Chiefs have had a rough time in their previous games against the division rival San Diego Chargers and Denver Broncos, so they hope to get back on the winning track and get one step closer to a postseason berth.

Unfortunately for Kansas City, they will be without starting left tackle Branden Albert and starting outside linebacker Justin Houston.

Albert is dealing with a knee injury, while Houston is suffering from a sublexed elbow that he suffered vs. San Diego. The Chiefs announced that both players would officially be ruled out when addressing the media on Friday afternoon.

Kansas City will likely need only one more win to earn a postseason berth, so this could be a great chance to capitalize on their great start to the season.
