There also was no good news on the status of running back Priest Holmes, who has led the NFL the past three years with 4,590 yards rushing, 6,566 total yards from scrimmage and 61 touchdowns. Holmes came out of Sunday's 28-17 loss to Carolina with about eight minutes left, and doctors said Monday he had an ankle sprain.
Without him, the Chiefs' already-struggling offense could be devastated. Holmes hurt his hip in the 14th game of the 2002 season and the Chiefs totaled only 97 yards rushing in their next two games.
``What it amounts to is how long it takes for the ankle to feel comfortable and go back to work on,'' Vermeil said. ``It's not a severe sprain. I think we have to list him at questionable.''
Even more pessimistic is the report on Eddie Kennison, the Chiefs' best receiver. He hurt his hamstring on a fly pattern Sunday, further weakening a position that's already been hurt by the loss of Marc Boerigter and versatile rookie Kris Wilson.
``He's our fastest receiver,'' Vermeil said. ``You take him out, it doesn't help you in any way. But I still have a degree of optimism he might be able to go.''
