As we’ve seen time and again with NFL players, a regular old ankle sprain is generally much preferable to a high ankle sprain. Still, it doesn’t really give us a great idea of a timetable for Hali’s return. A mid-ankle sprain is probably going to come down to Hali’s management of the pain moving forward.
Of course, we’ll be waiting on the MRI results that will come in at some point on Monday, along with the results of testing done on fellow linebacker Justin Houston, who suffered a sublexed elbow in Sunday’s loss to San Diego. Any potential ligament damage will be revealed at that time.
Stay tuned on Monday regarding any possible announced timetable by the Chiefs.
