Charlie Weis Reportedly Has Emergency Surgery

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis is still hospitalized after having emergency gall bladder surgery this morning.  Head coach Todd Haley would not confirm this afternoon exactly what the issue was with Weis.

“There is nothing life-threatening, heart attack-related, any of the couple things that have been brought to my attention regarding Charlie so, as far as that goes, I will make that statement just to keep there from being a bunch of hoopla.  But I won’t get into his personal side of this with any of our associates, employees, coaches or players.”

The specific issue was first reported by Shan Shariff of 610 Sports and confirmed by Kent Babb.

Weis’ agent Bob LaMonte told Babb the the Chiefs offensive coordinator was diagnosed on Friday, but chose to deal with the pain so he could coach in Sunday’s game.  Weis is not expected to miss any games.

“He didn’t bother to do anything other than live through 48 hours of pain,” LaMonte said.  “He’s a tough dude.”

Tough dude, indeed!  Between getting around training camp with a busted knee and coaching with what must have been ridiculous pain the third week of the season, Weis has already been through more pain than a lot of his players.

Luckily with the bye, Weis will have all the time he needs to get back up on his feet in time for the huge game against the Colts.
