Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson eyeing training camp
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

After tearing his Achilles in Week 1 of the 2014 season, veteran linebacker Derrick Johnson is ready to get back on the field, even if it means dealing with the drudgery of training camp, per the Chiefs' website.

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."

Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson participates in Wednesday's OTA
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

For the first time since suffering a torn Achilles last season, Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson was able to participate in team drills during Wednesday's OTA practice, reports the team's official website.

"It means a lot," he said. "Even though it's just OTAs, I'm a veteran, I've been to OTAs a lot, but at the same time, after being out a year, I need this time. This is going to help me get back to form and when the 2015 season comes around I'll be going."

Despite getting on the field for the first time since suffering the injury in the first game of last season, Johnson said he was more concerned with how he performed than the injury.

"A lot of people asked me, 'You ready to go today?' and I was more worried about dropping the ball when I jumped a route—that's what I was worried about."

Chiefs have no plans to cut ties with ILB Derrick Johnson
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Chiefs have just $2.8 million of cap space with the NFL draft less than one month away, and while the team needs to find a way to make more room beneath the camp, the Chiefs will not part ways with inside linebacker Derrick Johnson, the Kansas City Star reports.

"Derrick is obviously one of the greatest inside linebackers to ever play for the club and there are some pretty good ones, if you go back in time," team chairman Clark Hunt said. "In terms of the modern era of the Chiefs, it’s hard to think about the club without thinking about Derrick at inside linebacker. He’s a great leader, he’s a tremendous person, represents the club well on and off the field. We’re looking forward to having him back this year, hopefully good as new. You mentioned that his contract is up this year. There will be a point in time where we address that. But it just hasn’t been germane to this point."

Johnson missed last season due to a torn Achilles tendon and has a cap number of $5.2 million this season.
