KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs have suspended
running back Larry Johnson until Nov. 9.
The club is on its bye week so Johnson will miss one game, at Jacksonville on Nov. 8.
The three-sentence news release issued Wednesday night said only
that Johnson, who turns 30 in a few weeks, was suspended for
conduct detrimental to the club.
Johnson used a gay slur twice within a 24-hour period Sunday night and Monday, first on his Twitter account and then again Monday morning after telling reporters he was not talking.
The Chiefs said they would have no further comment on Johnson's status "at this time."
