Outside linebacker Justin Houston missed practice on Wednesday, but running back Spencer Ware was back on a limited basis for the Chiefs.
Houston sat out Sunday’s 33-10 victory over the Broncos because of swelling in his knee. Houston missed the season’s first nine games recovering from knee surgery.
Ware played into the fourth quarter before leaving the game because of injured ribs. Coach Andy Reid said Ware could have returned to the game if needed but remained out as a precautionary measure.
Others listed by the Chiefs as practicing on a limited basis Wednesday were cornerback Phillip Gaines (knee), who missed the Broncos game, and outside linebacker Tamba Hali (knee). Wide receiver Chris Conley was listed as a full participant while dealing with an ankle injury.
Never miss a local story.
The Chiefs end the regular season Sunday at San Diego.
The Chargers listed five players who missed practice Wednesday: tackle King Dunlap, guard Orlando Franklin, cornerback Craig Mager, inside linebacker Denzel Perryman and center Matt Slauson.
