KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs certainly needed some good news after their lopsided loss in Pittsburgh.Turns out they got it the very next day.Four-time Pro Bowl linebacker Justin Houston was examined by Dr. James Andrews on Oct. 3 and was given clearance to resume football-related activities. Houston has been rehabbing since February, when he had surgery to repair a non-functioning ligament in his left knee.Listen, hes in pretty good shape. Right now hes running around, doing a lot of things, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Wednesday. Other than that, well just have to see.Houston is not eligible to come off the physically unable perform list until next week, so hell have to continue doing his workouts on his own. But there is a chance Houston will be able to join the rest of the team as early as next week, the next big hurdle in his return to the field.Were giving him simulated football activity in his rehab, which is part of the progression, Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said. Well make a decision as this week comes to a close when well take him off the PUP list and put him in practice.While there is still no timetable for his return to the field, the news nonetheless made last weeks bye a little more palatable considering the 43-14 loss to the Steelers that preceded it.Houston initially hurt his knee in a game against Buffalo last November, but at the time it was diagnosed as merely a hyperextension. He wound up missing the rest of the regular season, but returned in a brace for the playoffs, playing 44 snaps in a victory in Houston.But he played only eight snaps in an ensuing loss to New England, and visited Andrews several weeks later to determine why there was still discomfort. The ligament issue was eventually discovered.Houston underwent surgery to repair it on Feb. 16 , and he was given a timetable of six to 12 months for his recovery. The fact that he could be on the field in the coming weeks puts Houston squarely in the window, and increases the likelihood he could be available for the stretch run.That would come as a big relief to Kansas City.The Chiefs were roundly criticized for the way they handled the injury, beginning with the initial -- and ultimately flawed -- diagnosis of a hyperextension. If the ligament situation was found at that point, there is a good chance Houston would already be on the field.Does he want to play right now? Yeah, its killing him not to play, Reid said, but thats the kind of guy he is. You have to do whats right. You take everything else out of it.To that end, Reid said the Chiefs will be cautious in working Houston into the mix. They have taken a similar approach to running back Jamaal Charles, who is expected to be a full participate in practice this week for the first time since tearing his right ACL in Week 5 last season.Charles played briefly against Pittsburgh, but should be full-go on Sunday in Oakland.The Chiefs could certainly use Houstons ability to pressure the quarterback. They only have five sacks through their first four games, fewer than all but one team in the NFL.Houston had 7+ last season, despite playing in only 11 regular-season games.Everybody is different. Youve seen how weve handled Jamaal, Reid said. Youre not going to put the player in a position where hes not ready to play, and so thats a challenge. Its a violent sport that were playing, but you want to make sure he can get out of his own way.Game notes LB Tamba Hali was held out of Wednesdays workout, though that is typical. LB Sio Moore was also absent with the flu. ... Moore was recently added to the roster, and the Chiefs plan to use him as an outside pass rusher. He came out here Monday and we kind of rolled him in there, Reid said. He was in with the ones a bit, not a bunch. Well just have to see.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Nike Air Max 97 Mens Sale . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for ticket and merchandise purchases.

With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. http://www.vapormax97.com/air-max-97-country-camo.html .

Nike Air Max Uptempo 97 University Blue . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. Adelaide must find a way to bring their fast-paced running game in order to succeed in the AFL finals, star midfielder Rory Sloane says.West Coasts ability to stifle the Crows run and spread played a key role in their 29-point victory at Adelaide Oval on Friday.The Eagles comfortably won the midfield battle and were able to slow down the Crows, forcing them to kick long to a contest which allowed West Coasts defenders to rack up intercept marks.Sloane was forced to watch from the coaching box after being slapped with a one-week suspension for accidentally striking Ports Brad Ebert.While it was frustrating to see the game unfold from above, Sloane says his vantage point made it easy to see where the Crows were going wrongIt wasnt so much the contested ball, it was more the stuff from stoppages and their spread away from them that got us, Sloane told AAP.As we know, finals means contested footy, so were certainly going to have to make sure thats right at the top of our game.But its also our spread. Weve really got to take the game on as well, that certainly has to be at a high level because thats when weve played our best footy.Sloane says hes raring to return for the Crows home elimination final against North Melbourne on Saturday September 10.Defender Broddie Smith is likely to face the Kangaroos after being sidelined with concussion, while winger Paul Seedsman (corked buttock) is also a chance to return.ddddddddddddSmith looms as a key cog in the Crows running game, providing more rebounds out of the backline and more inside-50s than any of his teammates this year.North Melbournes lacklustre record in the second half of the season - winning just two of their last 11 games - suggests the Crows will start short-priced favourites to win.But Sloane says he rates the Kangaroos big-bodied midfielders and wont be underestimating their potential to turn the contest.Theyve got some of the strongest inside mids in the comp ... they love hunting the contested ball, he said.Thats what finals is, and if they get first use to their big forwards, they can be very dangerous as well.Sloane has been in career-best form since replacing Patrick Dangerfield as anchor of the Crows midfield, averaging 26 disposals, five clearances and seven tackles per game this year.The 26-year-olds suspension left him ineligible for the Brownlow medal, with former teammate Dangerfield favourite to claim the award.
