  • Chiefs' BJ Thompson: Shifts to NFI list

    Kansas City placed Thompson (undisclosed) on the active/non-football injury list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Thompson being placed on the NFI list to begin training camp isn't surprising, as he suffered a seizure and cardiac arrest during a team meeting back in June. Kansas City will doubtless take every precaution with Thompson's recovery as he works his way back onto the practice field. He'll be eligible to return from the NFI list at any point during training camp or the preseason, once cleared to practice.

  • Chiefs' BJ Thompson: Released from hospital

    Thompson (undisclosed) was released from the hospital Monday, Alex Andrejev and Nate Taylor of The Athletic report.

    Thompson is now resting at home four days after having suffered a seizure and cardiac arrest during a special teams meeting at team facilities. The Chiefs will surely take a cautious approach to the 27-year-old's recovery. When ready to retake the field, Thompson will be in position to compete for a depth role at edge rusher while also potentially contributing on special teams.

  • Chiefs' BJ Thompson: Joining Super Bowl champs in KC

    The Chiefs selected Thompson in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 166th overall.

    Thompson began his college career at Baylor way back in 2017 before ultimately finding his footing at Stephen F. Austin. He didn't receive a combine invite, but the pro day allowed Thompson to showcase some intriguing traits, including long arms (34.63-inches) and 4.58 speed at 243 pounds. He's not expected to be an asset against the run, but Thompson is an athletic pass rusher who can have a situational role.
