[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs are facing a sudden logjam of bodies at linebacker as training camp begins, but it’s unlikely that the pileup will include first-round draft choice Derrick Johnson.
Scott Fujita and Mike Maslowski, two former starting linebackers coming off surgeries, have been cleared to practice when camp starts Thursday. The extent of their participation will be determined when the Chiefs put them through a workout that day.
Wide receivers Marc Boerigter and Chris Horn, who also are coming back from surgeries, will be put through similar workouts. All four might start camp on the physically unable to perform list. Depending on results of their workouts, they could be activated and practicing Friday.
A third injured former starting linebacker, Shawn Barber, will not be ready when camp begins, though he might be activated later in camp or after the regular season begins.
