When Tamba Hali left Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday after the Chiefs game, he was on crutches because of his sprained right ankle.
Monday morning when he showed up at the team facility, he was down to one crutch and he was able to stand in the club’s therapy pool and begin his work to get back on the field.
“It’s a slight ankle sprain and he was moving around a little better today than he was yesterday after the game,” said Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. “I think he and the doctors, everybody felt better after the MRI; it was a positive from what we saw.”
“He made big improvement from yesterday, but we’ve got to see how he does. He came in on one crutch today so we are making progress.
They tried to get an MRI on the dislocated right elbow of Justin Houston, but it was so badly swollen that doctors felt they couldn’t get the type of view they needed. They will continue to work to get the swelling down.
“It was swollen after the game,” Reid said of Houston’s elbow. “They tried to keep the swelling down, but it was puffing up and then overnight it was swollen even more.”
Reid touched on other injuries:
- LG Jeff Allen has a groin strain. “He was able to finish the game and he’s a little sore today,” Reid said.
- RG Jon Asamoah did not play because of a shoulder contusion and “he’s making progress,” said the coach.
- DE Mike DeVito “is making progress with his sprained knee.”
- RT Eric Fisher is doing better with his shoulder injury.
