[Kansas City.com] In his first meeting with reporters since going on injured reserve last week, running back Priest Holmes said Thursday that he hopes to retire a Chief and, at 32, still has a big itch to play. He’ll undergo two more tests in the next 60 days, chat with his family and then decide whether he’ll be back for the 2006 season.
If the doctors clear him, Holmes expects to play again. He said his condition has been diagnosed as pressure on his spine, there isn’t a lump and he isn’t in any pain. Holmes isn’t worried. He recalled a recent phone conversation with a fan who suffered a neck injury and advised him not to come back.
“I can tell you one thing,” Holmes said. “I’m not one to look 20, 30 years down the road. I really look at the next two, three, five years, and I really see myself playing.”
