KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston could make his season debut this weekend against Tampa Bay.

Coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that the four-time Pro Bowler is “heading in that direction,” but he also warned that there is no hurry to get Houston onto the field.

Houston had surgery to repair the ACL in his left knee in February.

The Chiefs were without several players at practice Wednesday. Middle linebacker Derrick Johnson is dealing with spasms in his hamstring, cornerback Marcus Peters has a hip pointer, defensive tackle Jaye Howard has a hip flexor, defensive tackle Dontari Poe has swelling in his knee and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin still has a groin strain.

Reid was not sure which will be available against the Buccaneers.
