Kansas City Chiefs’ player stable in hospital after cardiac arrest

Chiefs’ defensive end BJ Thompson is currently in a stable condition at a local hospital following a medical emergency, sources report.

Thompson, aged 25, was rushed to the hospital from the team’s practice facility on Thursday morning after experiencing a seizure and subsequently going into cardiac arrest.

According to Thompson’s agent, Chris Turnage, the player is currently unconscious, but medical professionals are optimistic about his recovery.

In response to the situation, the Chiefs decided to send their players home from the facility instead of proceeding with their regularly scheduled OTA practice. The practice has been rescheduled for Friday.

Thompson joined the Chiefs after being selected in the fifth round of the 2023 draft from Stephen F. Austin. In his rookie season, he participated in one game and made two tackles.
