KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The Kansas City Chiefs returned to work Monday at their practice facility near Arrowhead Stadium, trying to find a sense of normalcy.

It was difficult to do.

The locker that once belonged to Jovan Belcher, the linebacker who killed his girlfriend and then turned the gun on himself Saturday, still had all his belongings hanging in it.

Coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli had to walk past the place in the parking lot where Belcher killed himself. Teammates gathered in meetings and to watch film and couldn't help but notice the empty seat.

Crennel said that ``time heals all wounds,'' and the Chiefs are hopeful the healing has begun.
