Hat tip to Arrowhead Addict for the story.
As the week 6 non-football injury list deadline passes, Priest Holmes will begin practicing this week, according to SI.com. I don't think this will happen but Herm Edwards says not to rule out Priest for this weekend's game against Oakland.
I know I'm hard on Priest Holmes around here and most of you seem to be in agreement with me (those of you that don't make up five user names and talk to yourself anyway). But, as I've said before, I would welcome a healthy Priest Holmes back into the fold at anytime. Until he plays a down of NFL football, I can't help but think his comeback motivations are monetarily based. It seems that a comeback may actually happen though over the next four weeks, which is the window that the Chiefs have to either activate Holmes or have him sit the rest of the year.
Priest, please prove me wrong. We could use a veteran running back presence after Larry Johnson's seemingly uncontrollable outburts this season. Even if Priest has gone a little nutty, the Chiefs have to make some type of move to inject life into a listless running game. Since we can't sign four new offensive linemen this week, Priest may have to do.
The controversy surrounding Priest Holmes' comeback has centered around whether or not he's actually healthy enough to play professional football. We'll find out tomorrow when he takes the practice field.
