It’s not something they’d like to do, but the Chiefs are going to prepare for Sunday’s game without Priest Holmes. No decision has been made yet on his playing status, but there is concern about whether or not there’s enough time for his right knee to heal after taking a hit that knocked Holmes out of Sunday’s 34-31 loss to Tampa Bay this past Sunday. Doctors say Holmes has a strained medial collateral ligament. To compound the problem, Derrick Blaylock may not be completely recovered from a deep thigh bruise, leaving Larry Johnson as the starter. Johnson, who was taken in the first round of the 2003 draft, rushed for 21 yards on 10 carries on Sunday… The news is even less promising for Chiefs linebacker Shawn Barber who left in the first half with a knee injury after getting his body bent in half. He will meet with an orthopedic surgeon in Alabama, but he could very well be lost for the season.
