[Kansas City.com] Four days after making his first start with the Chiefs, offensive lineman Kevin Sampson was in a New Jersey hospital Thursday after reportedly suffering a seizure.
Chiefs coaches spent the day trying to cobble together information on Sampson. By late Thursday, coach Dick Vermeil confirmed that his second-year right tackle was in a hospital in Sampson’s home state. But Vermeil didn’t know much more than that.
Vermeil said the Chiefs were still waiting for their doctors to receive permission to talk to the physicians in New Jersey. He said hospital officials would not speak to them until the hospital officials had reached Sampson’s parents.
Calls by The Star to Sampson’s parents weren’t returned Thursday night.
“I’m very, very concerned,” Vermeil said.
“I’ve been trying all afternoon to get information. I haven’t heard from anybody.”
