Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston won’t play Sunday at Oakland because of his hyperextended left knee, coach Andy Reid announced Friday. Dee Ford will start in place of Houston.
Center Mitch Morse (concussion), receiver De’Anthony Thomas (concussion) and safety Husain Abdullah (concussion) also will miss Sunday’s game against the Raiders with injuries, Reid said Friday.
Reid said Abdullah, who was listed on the injury report on Thursday with a neck injury that limited him in practice, started experiencing the concussion symptoms during Friday’s practice, which he reported to the training staff.
“It’s a tribute to the kid to let us know,” Reid said.
