The Chiefs will try to snap their three-game losing streak on Sunday, but they'll have to do so without outside linebacker Justin Houston, who leads the team with 11 sacks, and left tackle Branden Albert, according to Randy Covitz of The Kansas City Star.

Houston was ruled out with right elbow subluxation, while Albert hyperextended his knee in last week's loss to Denver.

Houston is fourth in the league in sacks, and Albert has anchored an offensive line that has helped the Chiefs rush for 124 yards per game.

The Chiefs (9-3) will play at the Redskins (3-9) on Sunday. SI WIRE: Gary Kubiak fired as Texans coach
