Derrick Johnson finished Sunday's game against the Broncos with seven tackles (six solo), one sack, and two tackles for loss.
Johnson hasn't racked up the tackle totals he did prior to last season, but he did put out one of his better efforts of the season Sunday. He'll look to continue that effort next week against the Chargers.
Kansas City Chiefs standout linebacker Derrick Johnson collected eight tackles (all solo) in the loss Monday night to Green Bay Phoenix .
While he again finished with single digits, Johnson did become the team's all-time leader in tackles, having topped 1,000 for his career. He did lead the Chiefs in tackles Monday, and should continue to rack them up as the season progresses.
Johnson's 2014 season ended prematurely due to an Achilles' tear, but he's started the 2015 campaign out strong. The 32-year-old linebacker doesn't typically pile up sacks, but he has collected nearly 100 tackles in each of his past four full seasons.

Johnson did participate in minicamp and OTAs, but he said it's not quite the same, from a competition perspective or the opportunity to test his fitness.
"You can't back off, you have to be ready when you come here for training camp," Johnson said. "I will be smart and listen to my body at times when I am tired, but coach [Andy] Reid runs a hard camp. If you take it easy during the summertime and save too much of your body, you'll be a little bit behind."
Johnson missed 15 games last year because of a torn Achilles, but is sitting out because of knee inflammation on the same leg.
