Kansas City's Kennison injures hamstring in opener vs. Texans

HOUSTON -- Kansas City receiver Eddie Kennison injured his
right hamstring on the Chiefs' first play from scrimmage in
Sunday's opener against Houston.


The 6-foot-1, 201-pound Kennison got the ball from quarterback Damon Huard on a reverse, ran 5 yards, then pulled up lame after going out of bounds. Kennison ripped off his helmet and pounded it
on the turf as he limped to the bench.


Team officials said Kennison's return was "questionable."


Kennison, starting his 13th NFL season, caught 53 passes for 860 yards with five touchdowns last season. Kennison has 308 receptions
for 5,129 yards in six seasons with Kansas City.
