Charlie Weis recovering from emergency gall bladder surgery

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis underwent emergency surgery to remove an infected gall bladder Monday morning...after gutting out the pain over the weekend and coaching in the Chiefs' victory over the 49ers.

"He didn't bother to do anything other than live through 48 hours of pain," Chiefs physician Bob LaMonte told the Kansas City Star's Kent Babb on Monday evening. "He knew he was coaching on Sunday. ... He's a tough dude."

Weis, who nearly died from gastric bypass surgery in 2002 and used a motorized cart in training camp because of leg and knee problems, should be released from the hospital today. Given that this is Kansas City's bye week, he isn't expected to miss any games.

He should not, however, figure on the indigestion to go away. The Chiefs may be 3-0, but their opponents so far are 1-8.
