Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston is inactive for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts with an elbow injury.
Houston last played Nov. 24 when he sustained the injury. He has 44 tackles and 11 sacks in 11 games.
He returned to practice this week but was not deemed healthy enough to play.
Also out for Kansas City is left tackle Branden Albert with a knee injury. He has played in 12 games this season and is ranked the No. 6 pass blocker among left tackles, according to Pro Football Focus.
Donald Stephenson has filled in for Albert in the two previous games Albert has missed. Albert did practice on a limited basis during the week.
