Jason Dunn isn't practicing? Does anybody know what is wrong with his back? Is this a recurring problem? What ailment did he have last year that kept him out of the playoff game? I know Jason will be 34 this year- I wonder if he is reaching the end.

yeah, he's likely reaching the end.. he's had back issues for quite a while now, and they just pile up when one does the amount of blocking dunn does

According to espn.com Dunn had only 4 receptions last year for 40 yards and only 79 receptions in his entire career. Are those numbers for real? Obviously, Dunn is not a receiving threat at all. With our emphasis on youth and his medical concerns one has to wonder if Dunn will make this team. I know he has been a great blocker but it seems like we could find an offensive lineman to do that and maybe even catch a couple of passes here and there a la Joe Valerio. Any likely candidates on our roster?

the crazy thing is that, IIRC, dunn was a first round pick back in 1995 (time to google it)... and dunn is a good receiver, he happens to be stuck behind (arguably) the best receiving TE of all-time

LJ needs to lay off the TDs
Dunn's back can't handle the strain

Well, he is about the right size (same height, 10 pounds lighter than Dunn). I've never heard of him, though. Who is he and where did he come from?

Dunn got a dogleg w\the iggles after having a really good two seasons with the third shortened by injury, came in to the league blazing fast for the TE pos with a set of glue traps for hands. Had a 58 yd TD as a rookie. After the injury he came to K.C. as more of a blocking TE and much slower.

Whatever was wrong with it, he had surgery after the season, didn't he? I think that's why he isn't practicing... not that he's still hurt, but he's still not 100% after his operation.

would not be a good year to lose him especially with the line like it is.

before the Chiefs found out about the playoffs
can't even count on the haters any more

Dunn's a gamer. He's intense, man. He had a pretty nasty injury to his foot, I think, when the season was winding down and he was very vocal about wishing to have played through it.

We're just squirrels trying to get a nut in his world. He'll play in 2007.

Don't know if he'll be able to play in 2008.

But that I'm loving the size of that Keith Willis dude. Looks like he's the ideal blocking TE, although it'll be hard for him to play at Dunn's level -- in my opinion there was no better blocking TE in the league than Dunn during his prime years in KC.

Dunn wouldn't give me an autograph. And I stood right in front of him for like 5 minutes.

That sux, but aside from his snobbery, i hope he comes back for 07.

"Bruce" Willis needs atleast a year under his wing.
