Simms in Critical condition

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Chris Simms was taken from Raymond James Stadium by Ambulance to the hospital following Tampa Bay's loss to the Panthers today. The Charolette Observer is reporting he is currently in critical condition.

It's unknown what Chris' ailment is at the moment but I am assuming heat stroke. Jon Gruden suggested dehydration and rib problems resulting from hits taken by Simms from the Carolina defense. I'll post more information as it becomes available.

EDIT: ESPN is reporting his spleen was removed in an emergency operation.
