[CNNSI] With an NFL draft full of tantalizing young players looming, Kansas City Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson turned his attention Thursday to a veteran.
Peterson said he is counting Priest Holmes “in” for next season, as the three-time Pro Bowl running back continues to recover from midseason surgery for head and neck trauma.
“If we had to start today, right now, the doctor would not clear him for contact,” Peterson said. “But we don’t have to start today.”
Peterson said doctors will evaluate him again soon, and new coach Herman Edwards said he hopes Holmes will be able to return.
