Tamba Hali returns to practice a day later than expected

Better late than never seems to be the headline for Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali this week.

Hali was supposed to be back at practice for the Chiefs on Wednesday, but never made it onto the field and coach Andy Reid said after the session that he wasn’t sure “exactly what’s going on” with the veteran because General Manager Brett Veach has been dealing with Hali’s representatives regarding his activation from the physically unable to perform list. Whatever caused the change in plans, it was cleared up by Thursday’s practice.

The Chiefs announced that Hali took part in the session, which was his first since going on the PUP list with a knee issue at the start of training camp. That opens a three-week window for Hali to practice with the team before they have to decide whether or not to put him on the active roster.

If the Chiefs do add him to the roster, it will be interesting to see how Hali is used after he complained about his playing time at the end of last season.

  1. His days in KC may be numbered. First, it doesn’t look like their defense misses him. Plus, he’ll be 34 next year. It also doesn’t help that he made public that he didn’t like it when they fired the previous GM. Old, disgruntled, injured and not being missed aren’t qualities that are conducive to continued employment in KC.

  2. Tamba Hali is a proud guy. Not a chance in heck he doesnt come in and give 150%.
    Mark my words, Tamba Hali is going to be a force to be reckoned with down the stretch for the Chiefs.

    How and when he plays depends on what’s going on with Dee Ford.
    Look for the Chiefs to opt out of the 5th yr option on Dee Ford. He’s good but injured too much. They just can’t count on him.
