The Kansas City Chiefs on Monday reduced the suspension given to running back Larry Johnson for his use of antigay slurs last week.

According to the Associated Press, fear of losing arbitration motivated the NFL team to cut in half Johnson's suspension for using antigay slurs on Twitter and against journalists in the locker room.

"The agreement saved the running back about $315,000," the AP reported. "The Chiefs issued a terse announcement saying they had made the settlement in conjunction with the NFL Management Council and the NFL Players Association. Originally, they suspended the former two-time Pro Bowler two weeks, which would have cost him about $630,000."

Johnson will participate in team activities again starting November 9.
