KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Dante Hall, one of the NFL's most dangerous kick returners, has a hip injury and his status is uncertain for this week's game at Pittsburgh.

Hall had an MRI on his hip Monday and the Chiefs were awaiting the results. The two-time Pro Bowler, who earlier this year got his 11th career touchdown return, was hurt while running back a kickoff in Sunday's bruising come-from-behind 23-20 victory at Arizona.

"It might just be a hip pointer," coach Herm Edwards said Monday.

Also out for the fourth straight game will be quarterback Trent Green, still recovering from a severe concussion sustained in the season opener Sept. 10.

Edwards said running back Larry Johnson was OK despite a frightening few moments when he lay motionless on the turf Sunday.

Johnson was grabbed by the facemask at the end of a 78-yard catch-and-run that set up Lawrence Tynes' winning 19-yard field goal with 1:36 to play.

"Larry was in today. He's going to be fine, but his neck is obviously sore," Edwards said.

Hall, who also has become a favorite wide receiver target of backup quarterback Damon Huard, was replaced on punt returns by Eddie Kennison. Rookie wide receiver Jeff Webb returned kickoffs. Edwards said those two would continue to fill in if Hall is out.

"Eddie does a good job of making decisions," Edwards said. "That was a big-time play he made [in the fourth quarter] when he fielded that punt and got those extra 4 or 5 yards. Most guys don't catch that ball and have the awareness to get what you can. Webb doesn't know any better. He hits it like you're supposed to hit it. He's just following the wedge."

Green went with the team to Arizona, his first road trip since he was knocked unconscious and taken away on a gurney. For the second week in a row, he offered suggestions and encouragement on the sideline for Huard.

But Edwards said he did not know when the two-time Pro Bowler would start working out. Doctors have said Green would be eased back into action, beginning with light workouts and progressing to full practice before he could think about getting back into a game.

"I would think shortly he's going to start working out. I don't know if that's this week or next week or exactly when," Edwards said.

It will be the fourth straight start for Huard, who has both delighted and surprised the Chiefs with his performance. He threw for 288 yards against Arizona, hitting seven of his first eight throws and rallying the Chiefs from a 10-point deficit with less than 10 minutes left.

"Everyone believes in a guy who's managing a game like he's managing it," Edwards said. "I'm very pleased. He's done a great job of managing the game. The guys around him are getting more comfortable with him."

I was thinking about Turley and got this great idea: What if we let him check in at TE so he can help out Black. It'd be like having six OLmen on the field. It's flawless! And Dunn could be on the other side with TG out wide! And Kris Wilson could be at FB! 4 TE set! Genious!

Missing Turley AND Svitek is very bad.

This team is beaten to hell, and Pitt isn't known for using 20oz gloves.

I heard Herm on "Chiefs Kingdom" say that Green just got back from shitsberg pa and saw some "NFL Concussion specialist" and the results were very good and promsing of his return-

Herm also said that turley came into his office and said he wanted to start practing again- Herm responded saying that we had Jersey #'s and Pads waiting for him on Wed. for pratcitce-

Also-

Bennent is out but is recovering nicely-

Dante's MRI came back-
Just a hip pointer-

should be good for Sun.

One thing that concerns me is Big Ben's decline in play, not for him, but he suffered a severe concussion way back when and sucks now. Do you think he's playing bad because of it? If he is, could that mean that Trent will play like crap also?

Man, I'm starting to wonder if Turley will play another game. Seems like he might just be done.

I think his bout with "motorcyclefalloffus" has a little more to do with him sucking.

Hall got hurt on the kickoff return where he didn't follow the wedge at all. Unless that was the call, Hall broke left away from the wedge and got hit immediately. I remember thinking, "man he had four guys in front of him, and he left them high and dry."
