KANSAS CITY - Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson is out for the season with a broken right foot.
This was confirmed by a source within the Chiefs organization with direct knowledge of the situation.
According to the Chiefs initially, Johnson had suffered a mid-foot sprain in the fourth quarter of last Sunday's 33-22 loss to the Packers. However, it was later determined that Johnson had suffered a fracture.
According to the source, Johnson is seeking a second opinion on the injury. He arrived at the Chief's practice facility on crutches Tuesday.
So far this season, Johnson has rushed 158 times for 559 yards. That total has Johnson ranked 14th in the league-just behind Travis Henry whos 13th with 580 yards.
While this injury is bad news for Johnson, its a bright spot for the Denver Broncos whos last ranked rush defense who wont have to face him this coming weekend.
