The Chiefs might be inching closer to ending a chapter in its book. Team president/general manager Carl Peterson announced that running back Priest Holmes will not play this season. Peterson did not rule out a possible return for the 2007 season.
Holmes has been working out in his hometown of San Antonio. He is under contract with the Chiefs until 2009.
Kansas City doesn’t appear to have a glaring need for a running back. Larry Johnson rushed for over 1,800 yards last year after starting only nine games and played in the Pro Bowl. This season, Johnson leads the NFL with 1,202 yards.
