Weis’ Health In Question

From the Truman Sports Complex

According to the agent for Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, he underwent gall bladder surgery Monday morning.

Bob La Monte told the Kansas City Star that the problem was diagnosed Friday evening, but Weis put off surgery to get through the weekend and Sunday’s game against San Francisco.

Weis is expected to be released from the hospital on Tuesday.

The NFL pipeline was filled with rumors all day of Weis and problems. When asked about Weis, head coach Todd Haley acknowledged that there was a problem, but said it was not life threatening.

“As is my policy I won’t talk about anybody’s health; that’s a family business deal,” said Haley. “That being said, there is nothing life threatening, heart attack related, any of the couple things (rumors) that have been brought to my attention. I will make that statement just to keep there from being a bunch of hoopla. I won’t get into the personal side of this with any of our associates, employees, coaches.”

Weis has been dealing with a left knee injury that he suffered in the days before the start of training camp. He’s had several health problems in the past.

There was no word on whether Weis was at work on Monday.

    Read it was a gall bladder. Good thing we got a bye week for not only players but the coaches to get better.

    I hope you get well soon Charlie Weis! We need you and the offense to continue clicking on all cylinders like this past weekend.
    On another note George Blanda passed away this weekend. I can still remember his last pass, it was intercepted by Willie Lanier.

    Weis put off the surgery until after the game. I guess that’s leading by example. He should have asked for the twofer special and had the knee done while he was in for a tune up. I also heard about Blanda. What a competitor he was. I saw the local fish wrap got the history wrong and attributed the spearing incident that led to the Chiefs losing the division to Oakland to Ben Davidson committing it against Otis Taylor. Davidson speared Len Dawson after Dawson gained a first down on a surprise run and Taylor went after him protecting his quarterback and an all out melee ensued. That wasn’t uncommon during the rivalry then. Those were the days! We wound up losing the yardage after penalties were assessed and had to give the ball back and Blanda tied us on a field goal (no overtime then) that cost us the division. RIP George.
