Chiefs Hurting Along Defensive Front


The Kansas City Chiefs released an injury report yesterday area in the most trouble appears to be the defensive front.

Tyson Jackson and Wallace Gilberry did not practice and OLB and pass rushing specialist Tamba Hali was limited.

There are reports, although nothing confirmed by the team, that Tyson Jackson has a minor sprain in his knee that could keep him out 1-2 weeks.

Jackson missing time would be a blow as he turned him arguably the best performance of his career against the Chargers.

Gilberry is listed as Glenn Dorsey’s backup but he was replacing Jackson in certain pass rushing situations in the Chiefs season opener. He is listed as having a back injury.

Lastly, Hali was limited in practice as he has been dealing with a nagging foot injury since before Week 1. Hopefully the extra rest will help Hali heal up because the Chiefs need him as close to 100% as possible if they hope to generate a respectable pass rush.

Also limited in practice was RT Ryan O’Callaghan with a groin injury.
