KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)
Kansas City rookie linebacker Cameron Sheffield has been released from the hospital after hurting his neck while making a tackle in a preseason game against Philadelphia.
The Chiefs said in a statement Saturday that Sheffield has movement in all his extremities.
Trainers and coaches tended to Sheffield for several minutes before securing his body and lifting him into a cart. Sheffield was conscious and talking to team officials as he was removed.
He was drafted in the fifth round out of Troy and is competing for a job as a backup.
