Steve Spagnuolo: Up to Andy Reid if Willie Gay plays

Chiefs linebacker Willie Gay was arrested for misdemeanor damage to property on Wednesday and it remains to be seen whether he will play for the team against the Bills on Sunday.

Gay did not practice on Thursday and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said that it will be up to head coach Andy Reid to decide whether Gay is in the lineup or not.

A criminal complaint, via the Kansas City Star, said the damage was to “a vacuum, cell phone screen, wall/door frame and a humidifier” and that it totaled $225. Gay’s agents said in a statement that Gay was visiting his son and got into an argument with the child’s mother. They said that the matter should be resolved on Thursday by paying a fine and replacing the damaged items, but there’s been no official word about the case.

Reid will not speak to reporters on Thursday. He is set to speak on Friday and more information about Gay’s status should come at that point.

  1. I think he should play, but events like this should not be over looked. This young man need some counseling for anger management and a life lesson in growing up! I am sure his child was in the house and although he won’t understand or remember it, a child shouldn’t be near that type of behavior. Just because a man can father a child that doesn’t make him a father….time for Willie G to pay up, grow up and become a man. Go Chiefs !
