Simms released from hospital
Chris Simms was released from St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa on Saturday, six days after the Bucs quarterback had emergency surgery to remove his spleen.

Simms’ spleen was ruptured during a Sept. 24 loss to the Panthers.

Team officials, including coach Jon Gruden, suggested Simms’ spleen ruptured in the fourth quarter on a hit by Carolina defensive tackle Al Wallace. The league fined Wallace $7,500 for using his body to drive Simms into the ground.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported Sunday that Simms believes the injury occurred in the first quarter and that doctors pumped three pints of blood from Simms’ stomach due to internal bleeding.

The Bucs likely will make a decision this week to put Simms, 26, on injured reserve, which would end his season, or keep him on the 53-man active roster in hopes of a late-season return. Recovery is expected to take at least six weeks.

Rookie Bruce Gradkowski will start Sunday at New Orleans.

Good for Chris. Hopefully his season ends quietly on IR. His return wouldn't help himself or the team.

There is no need for Simms to return this year. If we are out of playoff contention in December, why risk it. If we are in the playoffs come December, how could you sit the QB that is leading the team at that point?

The beatings will continue until morale improves!!

Wow! Hurt in the 1st quarter & lost 3 pints of blood! That turns that warrior-like performance to Superman! Get well soon, Chris. I would say hang tough, but we all know you can do that. :)

And it also brings into question how competent the Bucs docs are on gameday.

Havent heard Simms, his family, or the NFLPA complain,  until that happens there is no question, IMO

If anyone else caught HBO's Inside the NFL this past week they talked about the performance of the team doctors or lack thereof.   I personally think they did the best they could under the circumstances and I'm sure Chris downplayed the pain he was in.   Apparently the only team that has an MRI machine on site is the Bengals and there will probably be more after this.

Great news, get better soon Chris.  There is no rush to keep him on the active roster so let's look for the IR report to come out soon.

An MRI-- the Bengals need a breathalizer and a judge on site.

Best news is Chris is out of the hospital and doing fine-- I dont see how you can fault any medical staff when as soon as Chris reported the symptoms he was rushed to the ER and emergency surgery.

It's not like the hockey player (forget the guys name) who actually sustained the injury in the game and then went out to dinner not feeling well and his family sent him from the restaraunt to the ER where they found his ruptured spleen.
