[Kansas City.com] Chiefs defensive end Turk McBride, the team’s best pass rusher during the preseason, suffered a bruised spleen during last week’s loss against Oakland.
He left the game early Sunday after falling on a Raiders player’s heel, McBride’s weight driving the opponent’s leg into his abdomen.
McBride, a second-year left end, said he hoped to play against Atlanta but he wasn’t yet certain of his status. He was limited in Thursday’s practice.
McBride said he vomited blood after suffering the injury Sunday. A CT scan initially revealed no damage to his spleen, but a second scan showed swelling to the organ.
