SAD NEWS: Kansas City Chiefs defensive end is set to undergo surgery on the torn ACL he is suffering in his..

Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Charles Omenihu is undergoing rehab following surgery on the torn ACL he suffered in January.

On June 3, Omenihu shared an update on his rehab via X, formerly Twitter.

“Surgery knee btw. 3 months post OP (operation). They said I wouldnt be the same. Keep doubting. Vengeance OTW,” Omenihu wrote as the caption for a video that shows him working out his right knee (the one he injured)

Omenihu, 27, suffered a torn ACL during the AFC Championship against the Baltimore Ravens. Though he was confident he would be ready for the 2024 Super Bowl, further testing confirmed that Omenihu tore his ACL and couldn’t play in the Super Bowl. He underwent surgery for the injury on February 20, per NFL Media’s James Palmer.

Based on the recovery timeline for that type of injury, Omenihu is expected to be sidelined for a portion of the 2024 season. But Omenihu wouldn’t be the first NFL player to recover faster than usual from a significant injury if he’s able to be ready for the start of the 2024 regular season.

Charles Omenihu Wants More Money But Must Earn It First

In an interview that was released on February 26, Omenihu said that he is still driven by his perception that he is underpaid, speaking with Justin Wells of Inside Texas.

Omenihu stated, “The main reason I still have a grudge against me is that I think I should be paid more.” “I think I belong in the conversation, even if it’s not about Myles Garrett or Bosa. Perhaps not in that conversation, but the people in the second tier? The subsequent level? Yes, I should be present throughout that conversation.
On the same day, Omenihu joined the cast of NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” and said similar things.

“I think I did, to be honest,” Omenihu said when asked if he thinks he’s done enough to get a new deal. “Like you said, seven sacks in 11 games and then the sack in the championship game to kind of spark off the wave of defensive plays. Finished second on the team in sacks and didn’t have the first six games to catch up with George [Karlaftis] and Chris [Jones].

I think I did, I think the tape speaks for itself. I think I showed dominant run play and then with the pass rush, inside and outside and just winning one-on-ones, creating turnovers, being the spark and, like, the energy plays they wanted me to be when I got there.”
