L.J. out for Week 8

Chiefs coach Herman Edwards told reporters at his Wednesday press conference that Larry Johnson would be deactivated for this week’s game against the New York Jets.

The troubled runner is currently under investigation by police for allegedly assaulting a woman. This is the second consecutive week that Johnson will be inactive. These off-the-field issues have made him a very problematic player, not only for the Chiefs but for fantasy owners.

With Johnson on the sidelines, owners are left to choose from the unimpressive duo of Kolby Smith and Jamaal Charles as potential replacements.

Other viable waiver-wire options include Cedric Benson, Ahman Green and Leon Washington (unless you’re in a smaller league where Sammy Morris might still be a free agent).

But if Johnson is on your roster, you need to plan on being without him for at least one more week.
