ARLINGTON, Texas. -- Tamba Hali is available to play for the Kansas City Chiefs for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys after the veteran linebacker was activated from the physically unable to perform list and added to the active roster.
He had been on the PUP list all season because of sore knees.
Hali, who turned 34 on Friday, has 89.5 sacks, tying him for 44th on the NFL's all-time list.
He hasn't played since last season, and his only practice sessions of the year came on Thursday and Friday. But he could play a significant role against the Cowboys. The Chiefs will be without starting outside linebacker Dee Ford, who has a back injury.
The Chiefs released backup cornerback D.J. White to clear roster room for Hali.
