Injured Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali didn't go through practice Wednesday, but said he would play in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium.

"I'll be ready to go,'' said Hali, who sprained his ankle during last week's loss to the San Diego Chargers. "I love the game. The training staff has done a great job of jumping on the injury and being proactive. I've been here early, in the pool and running. I'm feeling good.

"I know I can push off. I haven't cut yet. I know I can push off and run forward. I haven't run yet but I believe I can do It because I've been doing it on the treadmill.''

Coach Andy Reid said Hali, who has nine sacks this season, has a "good chance" of being available on Sunday. Hali did participate in the walkthrough session the Chiefs held before their regular practice.

"Every day he has made progress,'' Reid said. "That he went through the walkthrough I think was a big step. We've got to make sure that he's safe to be out there. We're not going to put him in a position where he furthers the injury. But his desire is great to play in the game.''

Kansas City's other injured linebacker, Justin Houston, also did not practice on Wednesday. He was getting an MRI on his dislocated elbow. Houston was also injured in the loss to San Diego.
