Tamba Hali injury: Chiefs LB goes down during Chargers game

Rick Stewart

The Kansas City Chiefs suffered what could be a big blow when LB Tamba Hali went down in Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers with an ankle injury.

Tamba Hali was injured and carted off to the locker room in Sunday's Chiefs-Chargers game. According to the Chiefs, he is questionable to return with an ankle injury. The Chiefs LB suffered what appeared to be a right foot injury on one play when he was rushing Philip Rivers. From replays it looked like the injury came on no contact.

UpdateJustin Houston also went down with an elbow injury

It's not clear exactly what happened to Tamba but after the play he tried to get up but then quickly went back to one knee. The trainers came out and tended to him for a few minutes before helping him walk off the field. The trainers then brought him to a cart on the side of the field where he was driven to the locker room.

The fact he was helped off and that it appears to be a non-contact injury is concerning to me. The Chargers former team doctor is on Twitter and he said it looked like an Achilles' injury, but that's just video speculation at this point.

Tamba Hali and Justin Houston are the Chiefs primary pass rushers. Frank Zombo replaced Tamba in the line-up.
