Chiefs pass rusher Tamba Hali plans to play in Sunday's matchup with the Denver Broncos despite spraining his right ankle in last weekend's loss to San Diego.

The two-time Pro Bowl linebacker rolled over his right ankle in the first half of a 41-38 loss to the Chargers. He watched the second half from the training room with injured teammate Justin Houston, and said initially that he thought the injury might be serious.

Hali, who has nine sacks on the season, went through a walk-through Wednesday and said that he wants to play against the Broncos. Both teams are 9-2 and tied atop the AFC West, though Denver has already beaten Kansas City once this season.

Houston is almost certain to miss the game after dislocating his elbow.
