[Kansas City.com] One week after he entered a Dallas hospital, Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt is still battling complications from a partially collapsed lung.
Hunt was still stuck in the hospital Wednesday and isn’t expected to attend Sunday’s game at Cleveland. Chiefs president/general manager Carl Peterson said people close to Hunt were trying to get the NFL Ticket installed on his TV so he wouldn’t miss another game as he did last week, when the Chiefs’ 19-10 victory over the Denver Broncos wasn’t on his hospital’s cable package.
“He’s doing better,” Peterson said Wednesday night. “But not good enough yet to have the doctors let him go home. He sounded better today and said he felt better. He’s having some ups and downs. Hopefully he will get released here in the next few days.”
Hunt, 74, has been battling prostate cancer since 1998. He’s missed three games this year because of hospital stays.
Peterson described Hunt’s current health struggles as a “combination of a number of things.”
