Chiefs' Houston could play vs. Raiders

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chiefs pass rusher Justin Houston returned to practice for the first time in more than a month on Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders.
Fellow linebacker Tamba Hali is also questionable after missing a game with a broken thumb.
Houston has not played since hyperextending his knee against Buffalo on Nov. 29. The Chiefs have considered him day to day ever since, though he has not participated in any workouts.
Even if Houston or Hali does not play Sunday, the fact that they are questionable increases the likelihood they’ll be available for the playoffs. Kansas City (10-5) has already secured a wild-card spot and could still win the AFC West.
