The Kansas City Chiefs listed outside linebacker Tamba Hali and wide receiver Albert Wilson as questionable as they prepare to play the Jets.
The question marks, literally some players marked as questionable, have surfaced for the Kansas City Chiefs as they prepare to take on the New York Jets on Sunday in a game of two teams needing a win to stop the bleeding. The team announced via its injury report on Saturday that both outside linebacker Tamba Hali and wide receiver Albert Wilson will be questionable for Sunday’s game.
The Chiefs already knew they would be without three of their players on Sunday: running back Charcandrick West, linebacker Dee Ford and safety Eric Murray. All three of those players have important roles and will be missed, but now word comes that further losses could be felt depending on how each of the aforementioned feel on Sunday heading into MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Wilson is an important special teams player who is also a sure-handed receiver that Alex Smith can count upon in a pinch for knowing where to be and when. He’s the eldest of all wide receivers on the roster and has proven his worth with big catches at key times this year. He’s also a reliable player for Dave Toub’s units as well, which means his absence could be frustrating for an offense that’s already a bit thinner due to West’s absence.
Hali has provided a burst at pass rusher since returning from the Physically Unable to Play list at midseason. While Hali has struggled to stay healthy, when he’s in the game, it’s clear he’s bringing excitement and experience to bear on the pocket and he’s helped push the passer when he’s in. If he’s unable to go, without Ford as well, Justin Houston will feel as alone as ever at pass rusher unless Tanoh Kpassagnon gets more reps than expected.
The Chiefs and Jets kick off at 12:00 p.m. Central Time on Sunday.
