LB Derrick Johnson Not Griping About Not Starting

The KC Star says that for now, LB Derrick Johnson is not having any issues with not being a starter:

Derrick Johnson still hasn’t asked. He said he doesn’t care to know why he was demoted from the Chiefs’ starting linebacking corps six weeks ago and has been a high-dollar, high-expectations bench player in the time since. He said he’ll keep waiting and practicing the way he knows how. And instead of asking coach Todd Haley about being benched and what Johnson might do to work his way back into the starting lineup, he said he prefers to explain himself with his play, limited as it has been. “I really believe that the field speaks for itself,” Johnson, a former first-round pick, said in his calm, mild-mannered way. “I don’t get a lot of chances, don’t get me wrong, but the field speaks for itself. I can’t worry about that. The season is too long, and this game is too hard to be complaining and trying to talk about — I don’t think talking is going to do anything. “All the coaches have great intentions. At the same time, do I want to play? Yeah, I want to play more.”
