[Kansas City.com] In his five years in Kansas City, Priest Holmes has scored 76 rushing touchdowns and made nearly that many references about being in tune with his body.
Holmes’ body told him something after Sunday’s helmet-to-helmet collision in San Diego, and apparently it’s enough to make the Pro Bowl running back iffy for this weekend’s game with Oakland.
Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil said Tuesday that Holmes is undergoing another battery of tests to make sure he’s neurologically sound. Holmes was knocked out of the game in the third quarter after being smashed by Shaun Phillips and Shawne Merriman, suffering what the Chiefs called a mild head trauma.
“We’re going to get more evaluation on him,” Vermeil said, “reports that will confirm to him and give him confidence that he’s healthy and ready to go.”
“He’s had some problem with a nerve earlier in the season. He wanted to make sure, No. 1, that he feels good about it.”
