The Kansas City Chiefs will be heading to Cleveland to take on the Browns and are continuing to sort through their injury situation for their second game of the season. Take a look at the Chiefs injury report for Sunday’s game.
OLB Tamba Hali (foot)
DE Tyson Jackson (knee)
T Ryan O’Callaghan (groin)
DE Wallace Gilberry (back)
S Jon McGraw (hamstring)
After seeing Hali perform at a very high level on Monday night, I have no doubt that he will be in there against the Browns causing his usual havoc. The other two are much more… um… questionable.
Jackson was having the best game of his young career when he suffered a sprained MCL. It looked like a lock that he would miss at least this week’s game, but Jackson seemed confident on Friday that he could actually have a chance to play against the Browns. As good as he was last week, I would be very weary of letting him suit up this week. Let him take the week to get his knee far enough along that he can continue to be disruptive.
There’s no telling what the prognosis for O’Callaghan is. Just when it looked like he was on his way back last week, he was inactive for Monday Night Football and continued to be limited in practice during this short week in Kansas City. While I’d like to believe he is about ready to finally re-join the offensive line, it’s just so hard to tell when a football player is dealing with a groin injury.
After looking like a scratch earlier in the week, Gilberry has said he’ll be ready to go against the Browns. If Jackson isn’t able to play, Gilberry could end up seeing the most action he ever has.
