Hali is considering retiring after 12 seasons in the NFL, SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

Once an elite edge rusher, Tamba 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 teams' 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.

Hali will be released by the Chiefs, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 Johnson. 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.

The Chiefs have listed Hali (knee) as active for Saturday's playoff tilt against the Titans, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Hali (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Hali (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hali has been limited in all five games he played this season, and he's only posted once solo tackle. Expect him to be limited again Sunday, especially ahead of the Chiefs playoff divisional-round playoff game.

Hali is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos with a knee injury.

EDGE Analysis

Hali did not participate at practice this week which makes it seem unlikely he'll suit up Sunday, especially given 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.

Hali (knee) is active for Saturday's game versus the Chargers, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Hali (knee) was unable to practice Friday and his been deemed questionable for Saturday's game against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

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 game-time. Tanoh Kpassagnon would likely fill in at outside linebacker should Hali ultimately watch the game from the sidelines.

Hali (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 head coach Andy Reid said he anticipates that Hali (knee) will play Sunday against the Raiders, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 his snaps likely coming on passing downs.
