Derrick Johnson: “I am still a Chief, so let’s go chase this ring”

KC Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson underwent surgery for his ruptured Achilles tendon and posted a picture of himself from the hospital bed. DJ has said that he wants to return this season so this may not be the last we see of him.

In fact, I’m sure it won’t be. Andy Reid said he wants DJ to stick around as much as possible which is a no-brainer.

Here’s what he posted on Instagram:

I want to thank everyone for all of the prayers and support I have gotten through this minor setback. My road to recovery starts now physically but mentally I still have unfinished business. Our Goal is still the same and I am still a Chief, so let's go chase this RING! #easilymotivated #blessedalways
