NFL | Priest Holmes says he suffered many head shots

Thu, 12 Jul 2012 08:35:01 -0700

Former NFL RB Priest Holmes said he suffered multiple head-to-head shots during his playing days. Many of those hits left him dizzy and seeing different colors. "This color obviously isn't going to be blue. It can be a color that can be orange. It can be red. The sky could turn green," Holmes said. "There's even an episode where you see a clear light, like light at the end of the tunnel." The hundreds of body and head shots have affected his daily life. "The frontal headaches, the migraines. Laying in bed, it's tough to get out mornings just because of the pain that is setting in with an arthritic condition, it's things like that that you never would have really thought about," Holmes said.

Randy Covitz, of the Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs RB Priest Holmes (head, neck) said Saturday, Dec. 16, his extended layoff from football this season has allowed him to get back into great shape and have an opportunity of returning to the National Football League in 2007. "Having this extended time off is giving me an opportunity for any swelling or fluid levels to become very stable, so I think I'm in great shape," Holmes said while attending the memorial for team owner Lamar Hunt. "What was needed was some time off. Having an entire 12 months without contact has put me in position to be able to make a decision in '07 whether I should return." Holmes, however, will continue to take his time before making a final decision on his playing future.
