Players placed on the active/PUP list can return to practice once activated. However, if they remain on PUP list to start the regular season, they would miss at least the first six weeks.
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering that Chiefs HC Andy Reid mentioned that Houston would likely miss all of training camp.
Houston, 27, is in the second year of his six-year, $101 million contract that included $52.5 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $14.9 million for the 2016 season.
In 2015, Houston appeared in 11 games for the Chiefs and recorded 30 tackles, 7.5 sacks, two interceptions, a forced fumble, and six pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 4 edge defender out of 110 qualifying players.
