DE - IND - Questionable
Week 6 Outlook
Indianapolis Colts edge rusher Justin Houston missed Wednesday's practice with a hip injury.
Tied for seventh among defensive ends with 3.5 sacks, Houston has been a steady IDP contributor this season. He reportedly told beat writers that he expects to play this weekend, so we should see him back at practice tomorrow. This remains a situation to monitor, but IDP managers can cautiously plan on having Houston in their lineups for Week 6.
Justin Houston had a productive afternoon in a 38-35 loss to Tampa Bay, recording 2 solo tackles, three assisted tackles, one TFL, one sack, and one QB hit.
Houston's numbers aren't eye-popping, but his ability to generate consistent pressure on the QB has him quietly on track to have his best season since 2014. He may struggle against New Orleans' elite offensive line next Sunday, though, so consider other options before plugging him in.
Justin Houston enjoyed himself a fine afternoon, logging three total tackles, one TFL, one sack, one QB hit, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery in a loss.
Houston's fumble recovery was a crucial play that eventually led to a TD to put the Colts up by a point. Unfortunately, that lead did not hold and snapped a three-game winning streak by Indy. The Colts have a much less formidable opponent next week against the Dolphins.
Justin Houston had a fine afternoon, recording three solo tackles, two TFLs, two sacks, and four QB hits in a 30-23 victory over the Texans.
Houston may never match his magical 2014 season in which he finished with 22 sacks, but the nine-year veteran showed he could still harass the QB. With this outing, Houston doubled his season sack total from two to four.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports former Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston is signing with the Colts.
Adam Schefter of ESPN adds the deal will be for two years and $24 million. Houston was released by the Chiefs earlier this off-season since they could free up $14 million in cap space by doing so. The 30-year-old certainly helps beef up Indy’s defense.
