Tamba Hali was an unexpected addition to the Kansas City Chiefs' injury report this week, listed as questionable with a sore knee, leaving the Chiefs with only two healthy defensive ends, Alfonso Boone and 2008 7th round pick Brian Johnston.
The Chiefs carry only four defensive ends. Alfonso Boone and rookie Brian Johnston, a seventh-round draft pick, are the others. Boone was a starting tackle last season and played in McBride's spot after he left the Raiders game last week.
Johnston played a handful of defensive snaps in the first two games.
The Chiefs also have linebacker Demorrio Williams, who has played some as an end but only in passing situations.
If Hali is out for this one, looks like we'll get a look at Johnston to see how accurate those early comparisons to Jared Allen that some AP commenters made were.
Although going up against Michael Turner in your first big game is not a situation any rookie should want to find himself in.
