Chiefs Activate LB Tamba Hali, Waive CB D.J. White


The Kansas City Chiefs announced that they have activated LB Tamba Hali (knee) from their physically unable to perform list and waived CB D.J. White in a corresponding roster move.

Earlier this week, Adam Schefter reported that the team was activating Hali and he was able to return to practice.

Hali was placed on the PUP list during the preseason and the Chiefs elected to keep him there to open the season, which cost them at least the first six games of the season.

During the summer, Hali expressed frustration with his role last year and the fact that he was limited during the team’s playoff game. However, they were able to iron out any issues.

Hali, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2006. He’s currently in the second year of his three-year, $22 million contract that includes $12 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $5.75 million over the final two years of the contract.

In 2016, Hali appeared in all 16 games and recorded 34 tackles, 3.5 sacks and a fumble recovery.
