Tamba Hali's MRI reveals 'slight' ankle sprain


When the Kansas City Chiefs lost to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday afternoon, their biggest concern was the status of star outside linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston.

Both men were set for MRI’s on Monday morning to determine the full extent of their injuries and we have some results.

Unfortunately for Houston, there was still too much swelling in his elbow for the MRI to be conducted, but Hali went under the machine and had his diagnosis announced by the team.

According to reports, Hali suffered a “slight” ankle sprain.

There was some concern that Hali may have suffered a high ankle sprain that would have kept him out of action for multiple weeks or perhaps even an Achilles injury, but Hali was able to avoid disaster.

While the diagnosis was positive, Hali’s status for Week 13 against the Denver Broncos has yet to be determined.

We will find out whether or not Hali will be able to go on Sunday as we keep an eye on the practice report as the week goes on.
