Simms at hospital

Quarterback Chris Simms was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa for an undisclosed problem. He is listed in critical condition.

 

Simms took several hard hits during the game -- on several pass attempts and a touchdown run -- and he left the game once in the third quarter, reportedly to be treated for dehydration. The quarterback went down on a knee at the end of a Bucs possession, but he walked to the locker room under his own power.

 

He returned to the field and led the Bucs on a go-ahead scoring drive. After the game, he also left the field under his own power.

Reading it from people who are listening to WDAE and other Tampa/St. Pete local radio.

 

Damn, WDAE is a Lightning game right now, so no use in listening to their feed right now.

 

Gotcha. Thanks.

 

Damn I hope he is going to be alright, much less his status for the rest of the season.

Chris Simms is in critical condition at a Tampa hospital with unknown injuries.

Coach Jon Gruden said he hurt his ribs, but didn't seem to know about severity of the injuries. Simms took a couple hard hits to his midsection and looked dazed to us. Simms did impressively come back in to finish the game.
