SN source Chiefs LB Johnson Derrick John

The Chiefs'all-time leading Nico Johnson Jersey tackler isnt wasting any time getting ready to play in 2017.A source tells Sporting News that Chiefs inside linebacker Derrick Johnson was set to undergo surgery Saturday morning to repair the ruptured left Achilles tendon suffered two daysearlier in a 21-13 win over Oakland.The procedure is being performed by renowned foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte.The reason for the quick turnaround is because it gives Johnson his best chance for recovery to rejoin the Tony McRae Jersey team as soon as po sible for next season, the source said.Johnson, 34, tore his Achilles in non-contact fashion while trying to defend a Raiders run play early in the second quarter. Johnson tore his right Achilles tendon in the 2014 season-opener but was back for Week One the following season.MORE: Week 14 NFL picks straight upWith a likely playoff berth upcoming, the Chiefs (10-3) will now have to try and find a way to compensate for their leading tackler in 2016 and a Andrew Whitworth Jersey linebacker versatile enough to remain on the field during nickel and dime packages. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said during a Friday news conference that the team is still weighing options about how to replace Johnson.Reid did say he wants Johnson around the team while doing his rehabilitation and get himself back to where he can play.In the meantime, he can Jake Kumerow Jersey work on a little coaching there with some of our young guys,Reid said.
