good grief. this week's injury report should list the players that AREN'T hurt, it would probably be shorter.

The play he got hurt on looked pretty horrible. He limped off the field. When I saw the replay I thought it would have been very serious, he got bent back bad.

KC homer here and unfortunatly this is real. Listening now on the net and the KC broadcaster are dumbfounded that DV seem to be playing hide the injury. DV did say that the injury was not serious.

When did Blaylock pass by Johnson? :unsure:
That has been a point of contention around the KC boards. LJ listed #2 on the depth chart but Blaylock has gotten more carries. When PH came out of the game yesterday in the 4th QTR, Blaylock was carrying the rock while LJ was on the bench planning his evening activities.

I too didn't realize Blaylock was the man behind Priest and that it wasn't LJ.Has anyone heard how serious the ankle and knee injuries are?

Good ? Any answers? :confused:
Maybe the real question should be did Johnson ever really pass Blaylock?BTW Depth Charts can be wrong can't they? Just because they are printed and published that way doesn't mean the coach goes by what everyone sees.

Well... nothing official yet. But 610 AM KCSP has been reporting "rumblings" at Arrowhead that the injury to Priest could be serious. I'm not sure how much creedance should be taken in these rumors, but if I were a Priest owner, I'd definitely be worried. It seems like Vermeil is intentionally keeping information from us, especially considering the doomsayers in town are already claiming a .500 season with Priest. If news came out about a serious injury to Priest, the town would spontaneously combust.Regarding the Larry Johnson/Derrick Blaylock debate, I'm not sure what to make of it. I've always assumed that LJ would take over if Priest was down for a significant period (i.e. one or more games). My reasoning may not be right, and they could even opt for a RBBC approach, but I'd put my money on LJ right now. He looked improved in the preseason, and I think he would do well as the starter. To be safe, I'd pick up both players if they are available and if you've got the bench room. Otherwise I'd go for LJ with a slight edge over Blaylock right now.

Anyone else think they are doing this more as a precautionary thing since they have an early bye? Give Priest a little rest now while he is not 100% to get him to full strength from week 6 on instead of pushing the envelope with their injured star?

Oh yeah, to clarify, the reports say it's an ankle injury. The dreaded words "High Ankle Sprain" have been floating around, but that's far from confirmed at this point.

Found this on PFS.

Priest Holmes Doubtful With Ankle Sprainposted 09/20/04A PFSi source close to the Chiefs is reporting that RB Priest Holmes sprained his ankle in the 4th quarter against the Panthers and will be listed as doubtful for Week 3. Early word is that Holmes could miss several games while he recovers. Stay tuned for details.
Sounds like this could keep him out a couple of weeks. Not as serious as some have speculated.

I had the same thought (fear). I can see them resting Priest weeks 3 and 4 so he has 3-4 weeks off before his next game. I guess that'd be a good thing since presumably he'd be 100% by week 6, but those extra 2 weeks off is going to hurt my fantasy squad.

Here ya goTrent Green ison now.
Thanks for the link.I'll confirm what moe4ya said, based on what I just heard from the web broadcast. Also they said that Vermeil indicated the knee isn't a worry, but the ankle is. And also there seems to be some doubt as to whether it's actually serious, or whether they are just trying to throw a wrinkle to the Texans on what to game plan for.

Ouch, by week 17 there will be no original starter that will not have missed because of injury. Its going to be an interesting FF season

The Texans still have no pass rush, and a mediocre secondary. The way they are going, they'll end up a bottom 5 pass defense. Anyone in the Chief's passing game is a good start this week.This, from a Texans fan. :wall:

I think the rule is injuries have to be reported before Thursday instead of Friday.By the way DV stated that PH did not have a high ankle sprain.

They're 0-2 with 2 losses at Arrowhead (iirc). I highly doubt they're resting him as a precaution. They need to win some games pronto.COlin

They replayed at least part of the Vermeil interview.Did anyone else listening get the impression Vermeil truly doesn't have any clue how long it will take? He really seemed to be hedging his statements, lots of talk about it really depends on the individual on how long something will take to heal, and he said a couple of times it wasn't serious, though he hurried over that part each time.For those who didn't hear it on the webcast... he said he'd just gotten the medical report. He read it, but flew through it too fast for me to catch the medical jargon.

The real question nobody has asked is: was Dicky Vermeil crying when he did the interview???? :cry: If so, I'd say it's very bad for Priest.

This is huge news and Sportscenter has said nothing!What's up with that?!?
I started a thread here yesterday regarding this very topic and I was basically called a nervous nelly. Maybe no one cares as much as we do.

Another interesting note, I heard that Eric Warfield was charged with a DUI after tha game last night and may miss Sunday's game given his prior DUI.This was reported on KC radio as well.

I saw your thread yesterday and thought nothing of it. Watching the game I really didn't think a lot of the injury, as it looked bad, but Priest came off relatively quickly under his own power. Even this morning on sports radio in KC there wasn't any serious concern. It wasn't until the press conference this afternoon that the rumblings really started to build up, which gives cause for concern.

I've got some heavy thinking to do. My roster is packed right now and I'm not sure who I'm going to have to cut to make room for Blaylock or LJ. Don't think I can afford to take both. I think Eddie Kennison's days on my roster are numbered...hate to cut him though.

Any linkage yet???
I'm watching Sportscenter and checking KFFL and Redzone. Nothing. Redzone even updated the Brad Johnson starting news but nothing on Priest.This is really starting to smell. Are we that far ahead of the curve on this board?

Chiefs - WR Kennison Likely Out For Several Weeks

Bob Gretz, KCCheifs.com - [Full Article]

WR Eddie Kennison left Sunday’s game in the first half with a strained hamstring. He’s likely out for several weeks. That put rookie free agent Richard Smith on the field for more plays; he didn’t catch a pass and dropped two, although one was a difficult catch.

I think we need to hear more about who Priest's back-up would be...Even if this is not that serious it may be worth getting the RIGHT guy. Anyone have more insight?

Hey Guys,Here's what I got from the Vermeil press conference:

Hi Folks,It sounds like Priest Holmes' ankle is more serious than originallythought. Head coach **** Vermeil, in a press conference relayed on Kansas CitySports Radio Sports 810WHB told listeners that Priest Holmes wouldlikely be listed as "doubtful or questionable" for week 3. He said thatHolmes' knee was not a worry but that he had a "slight ankle sprain".Vermeil emphasized that it was not a high ankle sprain.Although he said Holmes would be listed as doubtful or questionable,he seemed to stress that it was not serious and that it was a slightsprain. Which seems like a contradiction to us.Vermeil said the team was prepared to go without Holmes but that itall depended on "how quickly he (Holmes) can mend".Coach Vermeil didn't mention it, but Holmes is reportedly wearing anankle boot.When Holmes went to the sideline yesterday, Derrick Blaylock replacedhim. If Holmes couldn't go Sunday, it's our guess Blaylock wouldbenefit most with Larry Johnson also seeing time. Blaylock would be ashort-term solution, but Johnson would likely be the replacement if Holmeswere ever to miss an extended period.If Blaylock is available in your league and you can spare the rosterspot to take a gamble, he would be worth a shot. Priest Holmes isobviously a great running back, but he also runs behind an exceptionaloffensive line.This is all very murky right now. Vermeil was rambling and vagueduring the conference and seemed hesitant to offer much information.We'll obviously stay all over this one for you.Joe
We'll see how it shakes out.J

Me too. I am losing guys left and right here. This year might be more about luck then any I can remember in the past. Time to take up fantasy bowling. :P

Man, this is horrible. It's time for me to go work out, but how can I just take off and leave when there is such a potentially huge pickup on the waiver wire for someone else in my league to snatch up?The worst part is, I'll have to dump Trent Green to pick up one of these guys. And I'd assume Green could also potentially benefit from this...

I wish I could help man, really I do. I listen to KC Sports Radio for about eleven hours a day between work and driving, I read the KC Star, and I rarely miss a single Chiefs game, but I'm just not sure about this one.Depending on the depth of your league, chances are that either LJ or Blaylock is sitting on someones' bench. In that case, pick up the one that is available.If you have the bench space, and both players are available, take both and see how things shake down.If you've only got one free bench space, and both players are on the waiver wire, I'd go with LJ, based purely on my gut instinct.

Footballguy
How does Tony Richardson fit into this picture? He's been there for years and is a better blocker than the other two guys.

 

4thAndForever

Footballguy
I would think that if Priest is injured for a game or two, it'd favor Blaylock, but if it's for anything longer than that, it'd benefit Johnson more.
