Chiefs DE Charles Omenihu undergoes surgery to repair ACL tear

Charles Omenihu

Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Charles Omenihu underwent right knee surgery to repair the torn ACL he sustained in the AFC Championship Game victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Jan. 28.

Omenihu reportedly underwent the surgery on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

“(Surgery) was a success,” Omenihu said on social media. “I appreciate all the well wishes and prayers. I’ve been through the dark before and God has always guided me to the light, this will be no different.”

Omenihu had a strip-sack of Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson in the second quarter of the AFC title game before getting hurt on a non-contact play later in the period. The injury caused him to miss the Super Bowl.

Omenihu, 26, had a career-best seven sacks in 11 games in his first season with Kansas City. He missed the first six games due to a suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy following an alleged domestic-violence incident in January 2023 when he was a member of the San Francisco 49ers.

Overall, Omenihu has 18.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and 95 tackles in 72 career games (11 starts) with the Houston Texans (2019-21), 49ers (2021-22) and Chiefs. He was a fifth-round pick by the Texans out of Texas in the 2019 draft.
