News: Johnson (Achilles) indicated Monday that he has no limitations heading into offseason workouts, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.
Impact: Johnson entered the offseason as a potential candidate for release, but he will rejoin the Chiefs for the 2015 season. The 32-year-old linebacker tore his Achilles in the first week of last season, finishing the campaign with four solo tackles. He should slot back in at inside linebacker this fall, barring another injury.

News: Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt hinted that Johnson (Achilles) will be back with the team in 2015, the Kansas City Star reports.
Impact: As a 32-year-old linebacker coming off a major injury for a cap-strapped team, Johnson was arguably a candidate to be released. The Chiefs apparently have no such plans, which isn't shocking once you consider how effective Johnson has been when healthy. Assuming he's ready for Week 1, Johnson will be a strong candidate to record triple-digit tackles for a fifth time in six seasons. He suffered the torn Achilles in Week 1 of 2014, so he'll be a full year removed from the injury.
