KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali remains out of practice with swelling in his left knee, leaving his status for this weekend's playoff game in Indianapolis in question.

Right tackle Eric Fisher also missed the final workout at the Chiefs' practice facility Thursday before the team departs for Saturday's game. He strained his groin earlier in the week.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid won't rule Hali out of the game and says it's ''just a matter of the swelling coming down.''

He adds: ''It's been up; it's been down. We want to make sure we get it out of there.''

Hali is tied with Justin Houston for the team lead with 11 sacks. Houston will be returning to the lineup Saturday after missing six games with a dislocated right elbow.
