Chiefs' Derrick Johnson: Runs individual drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (Achilles) ran individual drills during Tuesday's minicamp, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Johnson is returning from his second Achilles tear in three years and his participation in individual drills is a major move in the right direction. Look for more updates on his status to come during training camp, as he'll likely continue with individual drills for the remainder of minicamp.

Chiefs' Derrick Johnson: Sights on training camp return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (Achilles) said Monday he'll be fully cleared by the start of training camp, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports.

Johnson's declaration comes after his 2016 campaign was ended by a ruptured Achilles suffered in Week 14. While that marked the second time in three years that Johnson sustained the same injury, his experience in rehabbing the issue has instilled confidence in his ability to made a quick recovery ahead of this season. Barring a setback, Johnson intends to be fully cleared for training camp, which would represent a considerable boost to the Chiefs' defense.

Chiefs' Derrick Johnson: Accepts pay cut to free up cap space
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (Achilles) accepted a pay cut to stay with the Chiefs, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

This move frees up approximately $4.25 million in 2017 cap space for a Chiefs team that doesn't have much wiggle room. The pay cut probably wasn't a tough decision for Johnson, who hopes to be ready for training camp despite rupturing his Achilles in Week 14. He suffered the same injury in Week 1 of 2014 and bounced back to play all 16 games in 2015, but he's now two years older and won't have as much time to recover before the start of the season. If healthy, the 34-year-old projects as one of Kansas City's starting inside linebackers -- as has been the case every season since he was drafted in the first round in 2005.

Chiefs' Derrick Johnson: Posts solid injury-shortened season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (Achilles) finished the 2016 regular season with 90 tackles (70 solo) one interception and one sack.

Johnson ruptured his Achilles in Week 14 against the Raiders, ultimately shortening his season to just 13 games. The veteran inside linebacker was on pace to easily surpass 100 tackles for the sixth time in the last seven seasons, proving he still has plenty left in the tank in his 12th professional campaign. He should retake his place at the center of the Chiefs defense in the second of a three-year deal with the team in 2017.
