Tamba Hali has been suspended for the week 1 home opener against the Atlanta Falcons and fined an additional game’s pay. This is terrible news for the Chiefs as Hali is needed on the field and has ridiculous amounts of fans that don’t know what to think. We will keep you up to date with any news or statements from the Chiefs or Tamba Hali. Here is the statement from an NFL Spokesperson:
Tamba Hali of the Kansas City Chiefs has been suspended without pay for the team’s first 2012 regular-season game and fined one additional game check for violating the NFL policy on substance abuse.
Hali will be eligible to return to the Chiefs’ active roster on Monday, September 10 following the team’s September 9 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Hali is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
I’m hoping it was an accidental overdose of flaxseed or something like that.
UPDATE: Here is Tamba’s statement on the suspension-
“I apologize to my teammates, the Hunt family, the Kansas City Chiefs organization and most importantly, our fans. I accept the discipline from the league and will return week 2 of the NFL season with a commitment to erase this mistake with my play on the field and my conduct off of it.”
