Important Update On Chiefs BJ Thompson Following Cardiac Arrest

Just four days ago, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker BJ Thompson went into cardiac arrest and suffered a seizure during a team meeting. Since then, eyes have been on how he is progressing and recovering from the event.

Thompson is already on the road to recovery and less than a week removed from the incident has already been released from the hospital and is headed home.

"More good news: Four days after suffering a seizure and going into cardiac arrest during a meeting, #Chiefs DL BJ Thompson was released from the hospital tonight, per his agent Chris Turnage. A significant step for Thompson, who continues to progress on the road to recovery," Tom Pelissero tweeted.

“The family thanks everyone for their prayers and wants to especially thank the Chiefs medical and training staff for their rapid response and professionalism throughout this situation,” said Chris Turnage, Thompson's agent.

Thompson, the fifth-round pick out of Stephen F. Austin University last year, is entering his second season in the NFL.
