Shark Bites

Chiefs DE Tamba Hali, their 2006 1st-round pick, sustained a hip injury in St. Louis and might be limited in practice this week. He is expected to play at Miami this Sunday. Hali is having a good rookie season after being thrown into the starting lineup the day he was drafted: 30 tackles, 3.5 sacks, & 3 forced fumbles.

The Chiefs on Monday activated OLB Tamba Hali off the PUP list, according to The Kansas City Star. Hali has been out since an offseason knee scope. Hali missed most Chiefs practices last year as well while dealing with the knee trouble. But he only sat out 1 game and delivered a solid 48 tackles and 6.5 sacks. The 32-year-old can be OK without much camp time. Though even at full health, he's not a high-end IDP option.

Chiefs OLB Tamba Hali reached a new 3-year deal to stay in Kansas City in advance of free agency. At 32, Hali appears likely to finish his career with the Chiefs. He's a marginal IDP option but helps the team D with his pressure. K.C. also added OLB Jonathan Massaquoi for depth when free agency opened Wednesday.

Chiefs OLB Tamba Hali (thumb) is active for today's game against the Browns. He'll be playing his 1st game since Monday surgery for a broken thumb and thus might not be as effective as usual. There's plenty of upside to the matchup and Hali's talent, but the injury also brings some risk. Weigh that against your other IDP options this week.

Update: Hali was actually inactive for the game. We misread his status based on incomplete info on another website. Sorry for the error.

Chiefs OLB Tamba Hali (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. He had surgery early this week after suffering a broken thumb in the Week 15 win at Baltimore. Hali missed all 3 practices this week and looks like a game-time decision. We'd lean away from using Hali even if he's active. The Chiefs might look to play him fewer snaps than usual, especially if they can build a lead over Cleveland. We also have to wonder how effective he'd be while likely working with a club on the repaired hand. If Hali sits, K.C. would start Dee Ford and Frank Zombo at the OLB spots, with Justin Houston still nursing a knee injury. The Chiefs still look like a strong team-D play, but injuries to both OLB starters lowers the scoring ceiling at least a bit.

Chiefs OLB Tamba Hali (knee) is active for today's game at Minnesota. He had been questionable. The veteran hasn't had a particularly productive start to the season, though, and is only a marginal IDP option.
