It is being reported by ESPN that LJ broke some team rules
- Coach Herm Edwards refused to specify what team rules the two-time Pro Bowler broke. But Edwards did say his decision had nothing to do with the charge of simple assault filed against Johnson this week.
A league source told ESPN’s Michael Smith that the discipline was in response to a pattern of behavior by Johnson, who is considered to be a high-maintenance headache by some in the organization. Most recently, according to the source, he missed a team meeting during the Chiefs’ bye week.
Most of the time I would be fairly upset that one of the Chiefs best players isn’t going to be able to play on Sunday, but for some reason I find myself being okay with this. IF LJ needs to be put in his place then I am just happy that Herm Edwards is doing his job. Also, LJ has been impressive in two games this year and nearly non-existent in the others, so I would like to see what Kolby Smith and Jamaal Charles can do when given an opportunity (even though it is against arguably the best defense in the NFL right now).
What are your thoughts about the LJ “suspension”?
