Charles Omenihu is still not sure of his ultimately timeline.

A few months after suffering a debilitating knee injury that required surgery to repair his torn ACL, Omenihu is on the mend and seems to be doing all of the right things to date in his rehabilitation. But as he notes, it's just impossible to tell exactly when he'll be able to return until he's clear physically and feels mentally ready, too

In a recent interview with KPRC, the NBC affiliate for Houston, Texas, Omenihu spoke about the realities of rehab and stated, "It’s going good. Slow process, everybody told me it was going to be like that, but it’s been decent.” When asked about his ability to be an impactful defender once again, he simply replied, "Whenever I come back. Yes, sir."

Omenihu's rehab has been expected to creep into the regular season all along given the timeline of his injury in late January against the Baltimore Ravens in the conference championship game before Super Bowl LIV.

Omenihuya has kept fans apprised of his journey so far with occasional posts on social media of his workouts. To date, he's always stayed positive, at least with any public-facing communications, and looks as if he's making solid progress. Here's hoping we see him sooner than later, but Chiefs fans can take heart knowing that the team welcomed back most of his linemates in the offseason.

Suamataia ties the knot

We want to give a special shout out to Chiefs rookie offensive tackle Kingsley Suamataia, who is having himself quite a year and it's only early July.

Over the weekend, Suamataia officially tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Nani Falatea after getting engaged last August. Falatea is a tremendous athlete as well as a basketball player for BYU who averaged over 15 points per game and was an All-WCC first-team selection as a sophomore—the youngest player to earn the honor last season.

Nothing like celebrating true love and fulfilling your dreams of playing in the National Football League in a three month stretch!
