[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs gave Trent Green a battery of tests to determine the source of the numbness in his lower leg and foot. A series of negative results has them believing there’s nothing sinister at work.
Coach Dick Vermeil was comfortable enough in that assessment that he even cracked a joke about it.
“They ruled everything out,” Vermeil said. “They can’t find anything wrong. They’ve MRIed, catscanned, mammogrammed. They’ve done the whole thing. Hopefully, that problem will take care of itself.”
Green began to have problems last week during practice. He continued to work and played a couple of series last week against Seattle. Green is scheduled to start in Friday’s final exhibition game in St. Louis.
“We’re not overly concerned, but we’re aware it’s there and doing everything we can to treat it properly,” Vermeil said.
