OLB Tamba Hali was returned to the Chiefs 53-man roster from the reserve/suspended list Tuesday. This came after he served his one-game NFL suspension last Sunday.
To make room for Hali on the active roster the Chiefs released OLB Cameron Sheffield. Three seasons after he was selected by the team in the fifth-round of the 2010 NFL Draft, Sheffield had yet to make much of a mark on defense or special teams. In the season opener he was on the field for one defensive play and 16 special teams snaps without producing a tackle or other stat.
Sheffield played in 17 games over two seasons, picking up 8 total tackles. He lost his rookie season in ’10 when he suffered a head/neck injury in a pre-season game against Philadelphia on August 27th. He did not return to the field until the next training camp.
