According to his website he is.

To all Fantasy Football Players:

Hey, everyone! I hope your 2004 season went a little better than mine. If you had me on your team, I am sorry to have disappointed you with the news of my knee injury and not being able to finish out the season. I hope with my absence you were still able to rack up the points.

Best wishes to all of you and much success!

No point in playing him and risking further injury now that KC's 3-8.

No since is risking him for the rest of the season, after how this season turned out ... I hope he returns for another season and helps lead us to the super bowl ...

I agree with both of you. I just don't know why we don't IR him and free up a spot for someone else. Someone like a Richard Smith, young, unproven, needs PT.

I agree about Richard Smith. I thought we were going to see something from him on Sunday as I saw him dressed during the warm-ups.

I think it's the nachos that got him to quit for the season.

He is probably not in playing shape anymore after 2 weeks of beer and nachos.

Well everyone kinda looked up to him as an offensive team leader and maybe motivator, but since he got hurt he has been in the booths upstairs. I hope he retires. What kind of motivator sits in the booths eating nacho's when his team needs his presence on the sidelines as motivation?

It seems bizarre that he'd release this on his personal website before the team is able to release the news. More indication of communication issues between Priest and this organization.

I don't think him sitting in the booth eating nachos will effect the teammates, his play has spoke for itself. I think it bugs fans more then the team.

You know where this is heading. It'll turn out that he failed his third league nacho test, and he's sitting out the season so he won't be suspended. The next thing you know, he'll be following Santana around on tour and sharing nachos with him after concerts.

This Nacho Thing needs to die. Next thing you know the debate will center around the flavor of chips...Instead of sending his charity bags of chips send greenbacks...

"Not finish the season" is pretty open to interpretation. The context there is fantasy points, stats, etc... I think he knows there is nothing on the line this season and healing a 31 year old RB body is a high priority for Priest to continue to thrive in 2005.

In the long term of things, this year might work out to be a great thing, IF WE CAN DRAFT WELL.

We have one year left with our offense.

Can I get a price check on a supersized 'IF'?

Injured or not, I wouldn't suit him up again this season.

For that matter, sit Trent, Tony G, Roaf, Waters, and Shields for the rest of the season.... let the backups earn their way onto next year's roster.

You need a WR. You *probably* need a new LT as well. I've always liked Roaf and admired his play, but dude is getting up there. I wouldn't be suprised to see him hang his jock this season.

Yea I had him and I won't be able to retain him next year if he comes back. From a team standpoint I would think they may sit him for the rest of the year but from a FFL standpoint I would like to see him back for the playoffs.

He is still totally dominating, I'll bet you he comes back. How much you wanna bet Taco?

Great idea.

While you're at it, bench Hicks, Holliday, and the rest of those sorry ****ers and play the young guys on defense, too.

I'm detecting a trend.

Maybe all Texas alumni are oddballs?

I agree about Trent, and even moreso about Roaf, and Shields (because of their age).

But Tony G and Waters should play as they are plenty young, TG has career stats to compile and there really isn't any reason to sit him, and I would presume that the coaches can't learn as much about young players if they don't have some veteran studs to play beside. I'm thinking especially about the guys who would be test driving the LT position.

I'm betting against Roaf hanging it up this year (unless he's injured in the last few weeks or unless he finds out that the Chiefs are building for the future instead of trying to "win now" next season).

But I agree that we need a WR and if the coaches aren't confident in the LT prospects we have now then we need one of those too.

I heard he double-dipped the chip. Suspensions will be in order.

Screw Tony's career stats.... they're not worth a possible injury. I'd tell Wilson to get ready; he' has some big shoes to fill ;)

Maybe keep Waters in, but at LT? :hmmm:

i thought jordan black was supposed to be the replacement for roaf at lt...

iirc, black has played well at lg when he has filled in for waters...

He dipped the chip, he took a bite, and then he dipped the chip again.

i was thinking the same thing.although it sounds stupid i think he could be talking about the fantasy season.most leagues end in a week or two.and thats what we've been hearing about him coming back.


but i hope they sit him and some of the others.
