Chiefs activate LB Tamba Hali from PUP list, could play vs. Cowboys Sunday

The Kansas City Chiefs have activated linebacker Tamba Hali from the physically unable to perform list, though it’s uncertain whether the five-time Pro Bowl selection will play in Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Hali missed the entire offseason program and training camp to rest and rehabilitate his ailing knees. He practiced for the first time Thursday and was taken off the PUP list Saturday.

To make room for Hali on the 53-man roster, the Chiefs waived cornerback D.J. White.

Hali, who turned 34 on Friday, has 89.5 sacks, tying him for 44th on the NFL’s all-time list.

Playing on Sunday could be a big stretch, as Hali has not played since last season and his only practice sessions of the year came on Thursday and Friday.

His return could help a pass rush that has struggled much of the season, and will be without Dee Ford against the Cowboys because of a back injury. Another pass rusher, Justin Houston, was limited in practice this week with a knee injury but is expected to play Sunday.
