[Kansas City.com] Having watched their star running back’s season end prematurely two of the last three seasons, the Chiefs are taking measures to see that it doesn’t happen again.
That’s why Priest Holmes has been an observer as much as a participant through the first five days at training camp. One practice off duty, one practice on. The pattern repeated itself Monday, and Holmes, predictably, isn’t about to complain.
“My body feels good,” Holmes said in what has become his annual training-camp health update. “I can definitely say that if I was practicing twice a day it probably would not feel as good as it does now.”
“It’s not disruptive at all.”
The Chiefs are resting other veteran players, as well. Offensive tackle Willie Roaf practices only once each day. Center Casey Wiegmann and tight end Jason Dunn have been given breaks. Coach Dick Vermeil said he planned to give one or more breaks to defensive end Eric Hicks.
