Kansas City Chiefs Mascot Hurt During Practice at Arrowhead
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A man who has performed as the Kansas City Chiefs' mascot since 1989 is recovering in a hospital after being injured while practicing a skit for Sunday's game against San Diego.
Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews confirmed Monday that Dan Meers, who performs as KC Wolf, was injured Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium. Crews declined to say what Meers was doing when he was hurt, the extent of his injuries or the hospital where he was taken.
According to the website mascothalloffame.com, Meers formerly performed as the St. Louis Cardinals' mascot "Fredbird," and before that was "Truman Tiger," the University of Missouri's mascot.
Crews says Meers' prognosis is good and he is expected to make a full recovery.
