The Chiefs have until Week 12 of the NFL season to figure out what they are going to do with running back Priest Holmes. The Pro Bowler suffered head and neck injuries after being hit by the Chargers Shawne Merriman last year. Holmes is on the physically-unable-to-perform list, and is scheduled to see a neurosurgeon in Miami this week. Chiefs President/general manager Carl Peterson said the team will make a decision on Holmes future with the team after the visit.
Holmes has been in San Antonio where he lives throughout the season. He agreed with Peterson to remain there so to not create a distraction within the team. Holmes recently turned 33, but has given no indication on whether he will return or not.
