Chris Simms is in stable condition after having his spleen removed on Sunday evening, following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' game against the Carolina Panthers at Raymond James Stadium.
"Chris Simms suffered an injury to his spleen during today's game and was taken to the hospital," said Buccaneers Team Physician Joe Diaco. "He underwent a spleenectomy [removal of the spleen] this evening and is in stable condition. Chris is doing well and we anticipate a full recovery."
Simms completed the game and rallied the Buccaneers from two second-half deficits in an eventual 26-24 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Carolina won on a 47-yard field goal by John Kasay with seven seconds to play.
