KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs running back Spencer Ware passed the NFL’s concussion protocol and returned to practice Wednesday, and he should be available for Sunday’s game at Carolina.

Ware was hurt in Indianapolis and missed last week’s game against Jacksonville.

Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston is also expected to be added to the roster, though coach Andy Reid said the move had not yet been made. Houston has been out after having surgery on a bothersome ACL in his left knee in February, and the deadline to join the active roster is Wednesday.

Reid has been hopeful that Houston will return for the stretch run, but he has not given a timetable for him to get on the field. Houston has been practicing for about three weeks.
