Justin Houston to make season debut in Week 11
Kansas City Chiefs fans already have to be happy about the team’s 7-2 start to the season, but they will be downright thrilled about the latest news regarding Justin Houston.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Houston will be active in Week 11 and make his season debut:
Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston, listed as questionable with a knee injury, will make his 2016 NFL debut Sunday vs Bucs, per source

Houston underwent ACL surgery in February and began the season on the PUP list. He only played in 11 regular season games last year after having knee trouble, and he hasn’t played yet this season.
When healthy, Houston is a devastating force on defense. The 27-year-old linebacker has 56 sacks in 70 career games, including a career-best 22 in 2014.
The Chiefs have 18 sacks on the season and enter Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay on a five-game winning streak.
