Seth Keysor joins Ryan Tracy to discuss the Monday night game and what it could mean for the Chiefs moving forward.
Early on Wednesday morning, Adam Schefter reported that the Chiefs were activating Tamba Hali from the PUP list. This would mean that he has a 21 day window in which to practice before they have to either activate him or put him on injured reserve. By the end of the day however Hali was not activated. What that means is anyone’s guess at this point. Hali will more than likely be activated this week but probably won’t play until after the bye week.
The biggest issue with the Chiefs missing Tamba Hali right now is the fact that Dee Ford is hurt now as well. Both Dee Ford and Albert Wilson didn’t practice on Wednesday. I would guess that both are out for the game on Sunday afternoon. Both of them missing the Cowboys game wouldn’t be good for the Chiefs but it helps knowing they are headed into a bye. Justin Houston was also limited in practice which is probably going to be the case most of the rest of the season.

The Chiefs did get some good injury news on Wednesday. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif practiced for the first time in full since his injury against the Washington Redskins. If LDT can return the Chiefs should be able to get their running game going again. He will change the way the Chiefs can block teams and gives Smith more time as well. Kansas City is starting to get healthier before they head into the second half of their season. With the bye week looming, the Chiefs should be in a great position to take on the remainder of their games.
