BJ Thompson, defensive lineman for the Chiefs, has been discharged from the hospital and is now back home.

Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman BJ Thompson was rushed to the hospital on Monday night after collapsing during a special teams meeting at the team facility. His agent, Chris Turnage, expressed gratitude for the support and praised the Chiefs medical and training staff for their quick response and professionalism during the incident.

Thompson, who was a fifth-round pick for the Chiefs last year, appeared in one game during his rookie season. He made two tackles in 28 defensive snaps and 16 on special teams. The incident serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of health emergencies and the importance of having a well-trained staff on hand to respond quickly to such situations.

Initially in stable condition but unconscious, Thompson was tended to by the team’s training staff who were credited by head coach Andy Reid for their rapid response to the emergency. Despite the frightening ordeal, Thompson’s family is grateful for the outpouring of prayers and the diligent care he received from the Chiefs organization.
