Chiefs star Frank Clark feeling much healthier this time around against the Texans
The last time the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs met, the Texans came away with a 31-24 victory over the Chiefs. This was without defensive tackle Chris Jones and linebacker Anthony Hitchens playing for Kansas City in that game. And one other injured defensive starter who was playing was edge rusher Frank Clark, who is looking to have a better performance than he did in his last showing.
The last time he played against the Texans, he was suffering from a neck injury that led to him missing two games for the Chiefs afterwards. Clark said this week that he “was probably 50 or 60 percent” for that game, but that he played because he felt that was better than 100 percent of some other players.
He would suffer a stomach ailment later that had him hospitalized and would have him lose a serious amount of weight, but he would come back to close out the final four weeks of the season. And he did so by recording three sacks and six quarterbacks hits.
It’s something that Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes had noticed, according to TheAthletic.com.
“It’s been awesome to see him kind of come on as late. Last year playing against him, I understood that he’s a good football player that’s always around the quarterback. Now getting healthy, you can see how much he can really impact the game.”
Clark says that he hopes to “put on a show” for the fans of the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round game against the Texans.
