Hali intends to play in the 2017 season and likely beyond, The Kansas City Star reports. Hali, who will turn 34 next season, is under contract with the Chiefs for the next two years but reportedly hopes to play on for another four. However, the veteran logged a season-low seven snaps against the Steelers on Sunday -- five fewer than reserve edge rusher Frank Zombo. Considering the Chiefs were coming off a bye and Hali himself confirmed he was feeling fresh and ready to go for the playoffs, it doesn't appear health was a factor in this near benching. At the same time, Hali still looks to have something left in the tank, so it was truly surprising the Chiefs didn't use him more. Cutting him would actually lose the team cap space, so that's not a remote possibility in the offseason, but it looks like Hali could be asked to accept a decreased workload if he wants to continue his career.
Hali (knee) was not listed on the Chiefs' injury report and will be ready to play against the Raiders on Sunday, ESPN reports. Hali received the veteran treatment once again this week, having been given the day off both Wednesday and Friday to rest his knees. However, he's fine to play and will assume his usual starting role at outside linebacker.
Hali (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Hali doesn't seem to be in danger of missing Kansas City's game this weekend as Wednesday appears to have been designed as a day off for the veteran linebacker. However, considering he has only played on 51 percent of the Chiefs' defensive snaps when active this season, he'll likely remain on a snap count even if he's indeed given the green light to suit up.
Hali (hand) did not practice on Wednesday. Hali was limited all last week with a knee injury, but ultimately played in Sunday's game against the Jets. It looks as if Hali is now also dealing with a hand injury, and he should be considered questionable as his status is updated in the next couple of days.
Hali (knee) did not participate in Friday's practice. The veteran linebacker was likely just given a day of rest after practicing fully on Thursday. He should be good to go for Sunday's game against the Jets without any kind of limitation.
