KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Tamba Hali woke up Sunday morning, went for a walk and then settled in to watch the Kansas City Chiefs on television.

He much prefers his regular routine.

The Pro Bowl linebacker was back on the practice field Wednesday after serving a one-week suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Hali apologized for the transgression, but refused to get into the details about what caused the NFL to discipline him.

Hali said that he didn't have any problem with the suspension levied by the NFL, and preferred to shift the focus back to the field and the Chiefs' game Sunday at Buffalo, where he'll try to bolster a pass rush that was virtually nonexistent in a 40-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons last weekend.
