810 WHB: Jackie Battle Missing from Chiefs Practice....New Linebacker Added?

Todd Leabo of 810 WHB is reporting (or Tweeting, whatever) that running back Jackie Battle is missing from the Kansas City Chiefs practice today.

In his place....a mystery linebacker wearing No. 55.

The Chiefs current roster does not list a No. 55, which was previously held by Zach Thomas.  Leabo says it is not Zach Thomas.

Why this intrigues me: Running back Kolby Smith can come off of the PUP list next week, which would mean the Chiefs would be carrying five running backs, an unlikely scenario.

Practice reports from Josh Looney and Bob Gretz should be out soon....

Stay tuned...
