SHARE Report: Kansas City Chiefs release Larry Johnson

The Kansas City Chiefs have released embattled running back Larry Johnson, according to multiple reports.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter says Johnson will now go to waivers.

Johnson returned from a one-game suspension today, one imposed after he called out Chiefs coach Todd Haley and making several homophobic comments.

Disgruntled KC fans had gone so far as to circulate an online petition to keep Johnson from surpassing Priest Holmes as the team’s all-time rushing leader.

It looks like they got their wish.
