Will timing chain stay in place on crank gear if cam sprocket is removed?

    I'm putting the head back on my 2.7, and I've been doing it step by step with the FSM. However, I realized that when I took the timing chain tensioner and cam sprocket off, there was nothing that I could see holding the chain to the crank gear. Is there a chance that the chain could slip off the crankshaft gear?
