[Kansas.com] Dante Hall, one of the NFL’s most dangerous kick returners, has a hip injury and his status is uncertain for this week’s game at Pittsburgh, Kansas City Chiefs coach Herm Edwards said Monday.
Hall had an MRI on his hip Monday and the Chiefs were waiting for the results. The two-time Pro Bowler, who earlier this year got his 11th career touchdown return, was hurt while returning a kickoff in Sunday’s bruising come-from-behind 23-20 victory at Arizona.
“It might just be a hip pointer,” Edwards said.
Also out for the fourth straight game will be quarterback Trent Green, still recovering from a severe concussion he sustained in the season opener on Sept. 10.
Edwards said running back Larry Johnson was OK despite a frightening few moments when he lay motionless on the turf.
Johnson was grabbed by the face mask at the end of a 78-yard catch-and-run that set up Lawrence Tynes’ game-winning 19-yard field goal with 1 minute, 36 seconds to play.
“Larry was in today. He’s going to be fine but his neck is obviously sore,” Edwards said.
