Alex Smith is doing well weeks after lacerated spleen, another Chiefs QB says

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

It was late December when Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith suffered a lacerated spleen, forcing him out of the team's final game of the season. That spleen injury was expected to cost Smith about six weeks of recovery time. Now that it's been more than six weeks, Alex is fully healed. This according to another Chiefs quarterback, Chase Daniel.

Honestly I hadn't thought much about Alex's situation since the season was over. (I bet Alex has been thinking about his situation, because it's tough not to think about your lacerated spleen.) The Chiefs offseason program doesn't start until April so there's no question Alex will be ready to rock n' roll when that time comes.

Daniel was in Columbia on Friday to be inducted into the Mizzou Hall of Fame.
