The reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs called off all team activities on Thursday after defensive lineman BJ Thompson suffered a seizure during a rally and went into cardiac arrest, according to multiple reports.

Thompson, who suffered the attack during a special teams meeting, was taken in an ambulance and hospitalized after the incident. He is in stable condition, according to ESPN and the NFL Network.

Selected in the fifth round of last year’s NFL Draft, the 25-year-old defensive end played one game and made two tackles for the Chiefs last season as the club captured its second straight Super Bowl title.

The Chiefs, whose medical staff worked on Thompson until an ambulance arrived, called off a planned practice session after the medical emergency, with coach Andy Reid and players postponing media interview sessions until Friday.

A mandatory mini-camp for Chiefs players begins Tuesday.
