Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones will miss Sunday's AFC divisional playoff game against the Houston Texans due to a calf injury.

Jones leads the Chiefs with nine sacks and has recorded 31 over the past three seasons.

Jones was listed as questionable on the injury report. He reportedly worked out on the field Sunday before it was determined he wasn't healthy enough to play.

Star tight end Travis Kelce (knee) is active for the Chiefs. He was listed as questionable.

Kelce led Kansas City with 97 receptions for 1,229 yards and also caught five touchdown passes.

The Texans will have receiver Will Fuller V available for the first time since Week 16. Fuller (groin) missed the regular-season finale and the team's wild-card round victory over the Buffalo Bills and was listed as questionable to play against the Chiefs.

Fuller recorded career highs in receptions (49) and receiving yards (670) this season despite competing in just 11 games. He also had three touchdown catches.
