Kansas City Chiefs Inactives: Tamba Hali Will Play Despite Injury


Tamba Hali will be active today despite a knee injury that had some speculating he would not be active today. Hali missed two days of practice this week and was late to warm up today before the game. Still, Hali will play today, but one would think we will see more of rookie Dee Ford today against Oakland.

Three Chiefs will be inactive today due to injuries: wide receiver Donnie Avery, cornerback Phillip Gaines, and defensive end Allen Bailey. Bailey and Gaines are out due to concussions while Avery will miss today due to an aggravation of his groin injury. James Fleming will replace Gaines and Vance Walker will replace Bailey in the starting lineup.

The rest of the Chiefs’ inactives include Aaron Murray, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Eric Kush, and Richard Gordon.

Oakland has their own set of injury concerns that will knock out players from today’s game. Offensive lineman Menelik Watson, tight end Brian Leonhardt, wide receiver Denarius Moore, and linebacker Sio Moore will all be out for the Raiders today. All of whom are dealing with some sort of an injury.

Healthy inactives for the Raiders include Tony Bergstrom, Stacy McGee, and Matt McGloin.
