Kanas City Chiefs Player Suffers Cardiac Arrest during Team Meeting

Kansas City Chiefs reserve defensive lineman BJ Thompson suffered a “seizure” and a cardiac arrest during a team meeting, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Pelissero posted on social media platform X that Thompson “had a seizure in a special teams meeting and went into cardiac arrest.”

“The #Chiefs canceled all team activities today after a backup defensive lineman had a seizure in a special teams meeting and went into cardiac arrest, per sources,” he posted.

“The team’s medical staff worked quickly, an ambulance was called and the player is currently in stable condition,” the post said.

“DL BJ Thompson is in stable condition after suffering a seizure and going into cardiac arrest during a meeting this morning, per source,” he wrote in a follow-up post.

“A fifth-round pick in 2023 out of Stephen F. Austin, Thompson appeared in one game as a rookie for the Super Bowl champs,” he wrote.

ESPN reported the Chiefs canceled Thursday’s practice session and rescheduled it for the following day.

Fox News reported: Thompson is entering his second season with the Chiefs. He appeared in one game his rookie season against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 18, where he registered two tackles.

Friday will mark the team’s final offseason training activity (OTA) before they return next week for mandatory minicamp.

The New York Post reported Thompson had two tackles in Kansas City’s Week 18 victory over the San Diego Chargers.

NFL.com reported that the media availability featuring head coach Andy Reid and several players was rescheduled for Friday.

Last week, Thompson posted an image of himself sprawled on a couch during a visit to the White House.

“Posted at the White House got me feeling like the president,” he posted on Instagram last week.

After being drafted by the Chiefs, the Arkansas native added, “I just want to put on for my town and show them that anything is possible, no matter where you come from. Hopefully I am accomplishing that.”

“Me and my friends, we all had dreams and goals of NFL, NBA but along the lines, dreams kind of die off and people get other plans,” he said.
