L. Hunt Misses Chiefs Game
Lamar Hunt, the 74-year-old founder of the Kansas City Chiefs, missed his team's victory over the Denver Broncos on Thursday night because he was hospitalized in Dallas with a partially collapsed lung.
It was the third game that Hunt has missed this season. He reportedly has been undergoing cancer treatments but this hospital stay was not related to those treatments, according to Chiefs officials.
The team awarded a game ball for the 19-10 triumph over the Broncos to Hunt's son Clark, an executive with the club.
Lamar Hunt reportedly was unable to watch the game because the NFL Network was not available at his hospital. The Broncos-Chiefs game was the first regular season game carried by the league-owned network.
The league awarded the Thanksgiving night game to Kansas City to honor the highly respected Hunt.
