The Chiefs will have both of their star outside linebackers in the lineup when the postseason kicks off this afternoon in Indianapolis.

Tamba Hali (knee) is active for Saturday’s wild-card game against the Colts. He had been listed as questionable on the final injury report of the week.

Also active is Justin Houston (elbow), who was probable for Round One after missing the last five games of the regular season.

Hali and Houston each notched 11 sacks in the regular season and have earned Pro Bowl nods.

While Hali and Houston will play, rookie right tackle Eric Fisher (groin/shoulder) is inactive, the Chiefs said on Twitter.

Donald Stephenson will start for Fisher, the club said. Fisher had been ruled out on Friday.

The Chiefs’ other inactives are quarterback Tyler Bray, tight end Richard Gordon, offensive lineman Eric Kush, outside linebacker Dezman Moses, defensive lineman Jerrell Powe and offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins.

The Colts’ inactives are linebacker Daniel Adongo, center/guard Khaled Holmes, defensive end Fili Moala, guard Joe Reitz, cornerback Sheldon Price, tight end Weslye Saunders and cornerback Cassius Vaughn.
