Cameron Sheffield leaves game with neck injury

For the second straight week, a Chiefs defender has been taken off the field after being immobilized on a stretcher. 

We just hope that linebacker Cameron Sheffield is able to return to the team as fast as cornerback Maurice Leggett was able to after his injury last weekend. (Leggett suffered a concussion and was able to watch practice this week.)

Sheffield went down in the third quarter Friday after a scary helmet to helmet hit.  While his teammates all kneeled in prayer around him, Sheffield was lifted on to a stretcher and then taken off the field in a cart.  Sheffield did not appear to show any movement.  The Chiefs say it’s a neck injury and that Sheffield is being evaluated.

We’ll let you know when we hear an update.  In the meantime, we send our best thoughts to Sheffield in hopes for a positive prognosis.

UPDATE: Sheffield was conscious and talking to medical personnel as he left the field.

UPDATE II: Coach Todd Haley sent his prayers out to Sheffield, but didn’t have medical information he felt comfortable giving out yet.

    That doesn’t make sense. That wording implies he was immobilized by lying down on the stretcher
    “A Chiefs defender has been taken off the field on a stretcher after being immobilized.”
    Fixed.

  2. hit was vicious, he collided with mike bell and dropped immediately, his helmet fell like halfway off and all. eagles and cardinals both knelt in prayer. hope he’s okay. didn’t look like he was moving too much when they carted him off the field.
