Chiefs Justin Houston admits he was just a tad bit rusty

BY foxsports • January 10, 2016

Justin Houston ended his five-week injury hiatus just in time to play in the Chiefs' first playoff win in 22 years.

But the star outside linebacker needed some time to adjust -- and admitted he wasn't playing up to standards vs. the Houston Texans on Saturday.

Houston, via "I had to knock some rust off. I didn't do as well as I wanted to do out there."

Kansas City could afford to take it slow with their sackmaster. He'll get further acclimated to a bulky knee brace and, perhaps, receive further treatment after banging on it on Saturday.

The team will need a rust-free Houston to pressure Tom Brady next weekend in Foxboro, though.
