Johnson, DeVito likely done for season

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Observed and heard in the locker room after the Kansas City Chiefs' 26-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans:

  • Coach Andy Reid confirmed that linebacker Derrick Johnson and defensive end Mike DeVito each ruptured an Achilles tendon and are likely out for the season. Both left the stadium on crutches.

  • Rookie kicker Cairo Santos had a difficult NFL debut, making one of two field goal attempts and bouncing both kicks off an upright. But Santos didn’t hide from the heat afterward. He patiently answered questions and resolved to do better the next time.

  • Running back Jamaal Charles got the ball only 11 times, but he said a bigger problem was the missed field goal. It happened in the second quarter with the Chiefs ahead 3-0. Charles said the failed kick killed whatever momentum the Chiefs had.
