Tamba Hali remains injured but expected to play in Chiefs-Colts game

Leon Halip

Tamba Hali has not been practicing with a knee injury but it would be a surprise if he didn't play.

I've said a few times, including with Eric Fisher's injury this week, that a player's availability at practice can tell you a lot about their status for the game. Missing the final practice of the week, for example, is generally considered bad news for a player's chances of playing.

Looking solely at Tamba Hali's practice habits this week, I would say he has serious questions about playing this weekend. He did not practice at all last week (although none of the starters played in Week 17). And he has yet to put in a full practice this week.

While Hali hasn't been practicing regularly, he is still expected to play, according to two folks in the know.

What a kick in the you know what it would be if Hali couldn't go. The Chiefs waited the last five weeks to get Houston back and then when they do, Hali is banged up. The good news is that we sit here just two days before the game and the feeling is that he will play.
