Tamba Hali: Calls it a career
Hali has signed a one-day contract with the Chiefs in order to retire as a member of the organization, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Hali hadn't seen action in the NFL since 2017, so it comes as no surprise to see the 37-year-old now officially hang up the cleats. The six-time All-Pro enjoyed a spectacular 12-year run in Kansas City, in which he logged the second-most sacks in team history (89.5) behind only Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas. Hali will be remembered as one of the team's all-time greatest first-round selections, having gone 20th overall back in the 2006 NFL Draft.... See More ... See Less
Tamba Hali: Weighing retirement
Hali is considering retiring after 12 seasons in the NFL, SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Once an elite edge rusher, Hali played all 12 seasons of his career to date in Kansas City, totaling 89.5 sacks over that span. He's been a free agent for the last several months and he doesn't appear high on any team's radar. If he decides he wants to keep playing he'll likely be able to catch on with a team as a rotational pass rusher in 2018.... See More ... See Less
Tamba Hali: Time's up in Kansas City
Hali will be released by the Chiefs, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
It's a sad day for Chiefs fans everywhere, as Hali enjoyed a fantastic 12-year run in Kansas City and finishes his tenure with 89.5 sacks, second-most in team history behind the legendary Derrick Thomas. However, it was indeed the right time for the Chiefs to move on, as Hali was limited to only 99 defensive snaps in 2017 and finished the year with one mere tackle. Kansas City saves $7.7 million against the cap with his release.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Will play Saturday
The Chiefs have listed Hali (knee) as active for Saturday's playoff tilt against the Titans, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Hali was originally deemed questionable due to a knee injury, but will play through the issue. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, he should take on his usual workload at outside linebacker in the contest.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Questionable for Saturday
Hali (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Titans.
Hali did not play Week 17 against the Broncos as he continues to nurse a knee injury that kept him sidelined for the first half of the season. In the contests he's played, he's had a very limited role, never exceeding 30 defensive snaps in a contest. Should he be cleared to play Saturday, look for him to play in the same limited role....

Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Ready for Sunday's contest
Hali (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Hali has been limited in all five games he played this season, and he's only posted one solo tackle. Expect him to be limited again Sunday, especially ahead of the Chiefs playoff divisional-round playoff game.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Questionable for Sunday
Hali is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos with a knee injury.
Hali's complete lack of participation in practice this week makes it unlikely he'll suit up Sunday, especially considering the Chiefs are already locked into the No. 4 playoff spot in the AFC. Frank Zombo and Tanoh Kpassagnon would see increased snap counts if Hali is ultimately unable to play Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Available Saturday
Hali (knee) is active for Saturday's game versus the Chargers, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Hali didn't practice Thursday after limited sessions the previous two days, but the veteran pass rusher will nonetheless make his fourth appearance of the season. In the prior three, he notched one tackle on 66 defensive snaps, so his viability has dried up in his age-34 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Game-time decision Saturday
Hali (knee) was unable to practice Friday and his been deemed questionable for Saturday's game against the Chargers.
Hali logged limited workloads Tuesday and Wednesday, so his absence at Friday's practice indicates he is trending in the wrong direction. However, his final status will likely depend on how his knee is feeling closer to gametime. Tanoh Kpassagnon would likely fill in at outside linebacker should Hali ultimately watch the game from the sidelines.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Will play Sunday
Hali (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.
Hali has played just 36 defensive snaps in two games all season, logging a single tackle in the process as a knee injury has kept him limited. The Chiefs will likely continue to proceed cautiously with the veteran's level of activity on Sunday, while Tanoh Kpassagnon and Frank Zombo could see additional reps at outside linebacker....

Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Expected back Week 14
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said he anticipates that Hali (knee) will play Sunday against the Raiders, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
With the Chiefs playing road games against the Giants and Jets on the artificial turf at MetLife Stadium in two of the last three games, Hali has been held out of both of those contests to ease the stress on his knee, which has limited him throughout the season. While Hali's practice time this week will likely be managed carefully, the linebacker should be cleared to take the field Sunday, barring a setback over the next few days. Even if Hali suits up, however, he would likely be limited to a rotational role, with most of his snaps likely coming on passing downs.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Ruled out for Week 13
Hali (knee) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Questionable for Week 13
Hali (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Hali was a limited participant in practice this week after suiting up against the Bills in Week 12. The Chiefs can ill afford to be without Hali this week with Dee Ford (back) already ruled out. Frank Zombo and Tanoh Kpassagnon would serve opposite Justin Houston at outside linebacker if Hali is unable to suit up.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Suiting up Week 12
Hali (knee) has avoided the inactive list Sunday against the Bills, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Despite failing to take the practice field in a full capacity this week, Hali will suit up and be available to provide outside linebacker depth for the Chiefs. This will come in handy with Dee Ford (back) inactive, but if the Chiefs elect to limit Hali's snaps in any capacity, Frank Zombo would once again see a healthy workload.... See More ... See Less
Chiefs' Tamba Hali: Limited participant Wednesday
Hali (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Hali continues to deal with complications and swelling from his previous knee injury, and that kept him out in Week 11. The Chiefs likely will need to get a full practice out of Hali before they're comfortable putting him on the game field, and their pass rush could be useful against mobile Bills' QB Tyrod Taylor....
