Chiefs | Two placed on IR (Tue Sep 9, 06:41 PM) - The Kansas City Chiefs placed LB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') and DE Mike DeVito (Achilles') on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Sept. 9.

Our View: Two huge blows to the Chiefs defense. DeVito was an underrated player on that defensive line, and Johnson was a defensive leader who is a tackling machine.

Chiefs | Two players out for season (Mon Sep 8, 01:31 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs DE Mike DeVito (Achilles') and LB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') will miss the rest of the season because of Achilles' tendon injuries they suffered during the team's Week 1 game, according to head coach Andy Reid. Both players will undergo surgery to repair the injuries.

Our View: Huge losses for the Chiefs' defense here. DeVito is an underrated player on the defensive line, and Johnson is one of the best linebackers in the game. Their run defense is going to suffer. Take note of running backs playing against the Chiefs...just so happens to be Montee Ball (Broncos) in Week 2.

Chiefs | Derrick Johnson tears Achilles' (Sun Sep 7, 06:29 PM) - Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans, head coach Andy Reid confirmed Sunday, Sept. 7.

Our View: Kansas City can't afford to lose Johnson. The matchup next week at Denver threatens to be a bloodbath with this defense adjusting to losing its leader.

Chiefs | Derrick Johnson may have serious injury (Sun Sep 7, 03:41 PM) - The Kansas City Chiefs believe LB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during their Week 1 game, according to a source.

Our View: This is a massive loss for the Chiefs. Inside linebacker is one of their thinnest positions, and Johnson is one of the best in the league. A nightmarish home opener just got darker for Kansas City. At least the Royals are in playoff contention.
