    Johnson, who was benched for Sunday’s game for violating team rules, may face league punishment for a separate incident, ESPN.com reports. Sources say Johnson was involved in a physical altercation with a woman at a Kansas City nightclub during the Chiefs’ bye week.

    Recommendation: Johnson is already facing a December court date for yet another assault allegation. This the fourth alleged incident of Johnson’s NFL career and the second of 2008. The past three have all involved a nightclub and a female accuser. To the NFL, that represents a disturbing pattern of behavior, and sources report that Johnson will face a league-imposed suspension for his involvement in the incidents. “It’s just a matter of for how long,” one source said. Kolby Smith saw the bulk of the work on Sunday with Johnson out and would likely continue as the starter if Johnson is suspended. Jamaal Charles will rotate in as a change-of-pace runner.

    That KC team is just imploding. Why didn't they move Tony Gonzales?

    I think they waited a little too long, or he at least asked a little too late. I first heard about him wanting to be traded like 4 days before the deadline. Maybe teams were reluctant because of what KC was asking for. Either way thought its kind of a shame for him. He deserved to go somewhere that had a chance at winning.

    Because their GM is hardheaded when negotiating with other teams for trades and Gonzales himself should be blamed also, he turned down deals to play in Buffalo or Atlanta.
