Report: Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson out for season with torn Achilles

The Chiefs defense was dealt a massive blow on Sunday, as Derrick Johnson suffered what is believed to be a torn Achilles.

Ian Rapoport says the injury is a season ender for Johnson, who graded out at +18.6 over 1,038 snaps in 2013.

The ninth-year linebacker had 4.5 sacks, two picks, seven passes defensed, and 107 total tackles last year.

According to Mike Florio, Von Miller can hold out for almost the entirety of his fifth season (2015) and still become a free agent the following offseason.

It would be a costly tactic, as Von is set to draw his biggest salary to date ($9.754M). And Denver would still have the option of using its franchise tag on Miller at that point.

We don't see negotiations between Von and the Broncos getting to that point, but it's an important possibility to keep in mind.

La Canfora also confirmed an earlier report by Mike Klis that Welker's suspension was triggered by Adderall use, not Molly.

Rib injury may keep Cam Newton out for Week 1

Sure, there's the typical stuff - the workouts, the weightlifting, the practices, the game planning, and film work.

But that's not what we're talking about.

It's time for Peyton Manning & Co. to test their vocabularies.
