Turk McBride Injured Spleen

From the FanPosts. -Chris

Apparently the injury Turk McBride suffered in the Oakland game was a spleen that was bruised seriously enough that he vomited blood after getting hit.  Fortunately he appears to be on the road to recovery and should return soon, although his status against the Falcons was uncertain.

The second-year left end said he hoped to play against Atlanta but that he wasn’t yet certain of his status. He was limited in Thursday’s practice.

“We’re basically just taking it day by day,” McBride said. “My mindset is, I’m playing.”

Given the lack of options behind him and the Chiefs' struggles along the defensive line after he left, McBride's return will be welcomed by fans...who are also grateful that the injury wasn't as serious as the one suffered by Chris Simms.

It's a brutal world up there on the line.
