Simms moved out of intensive care
Quarterback Chris Simms was moved to a medical recovery floor from the intensive care unit at St. Joseph's Hospital Tuesday.
A statement released by the family said Simms' condition 'continues to improve daily and his doctors expect a full recovery.' Simms is expected to remain in the hospital for several more days recovering from surgery Sunday to remove his spleen.
Simms and his family thanked the medical teams from both the Bucs and St. Joseph's Hospital 'for their prompt, professional care, allowing him to now focus on his recovery and rehabilitation.'
""Mr. Simms and his family also want to thank the well-wishers, from throughout Tampa Bay and across America, who have expressed their loving support for him with the hope of a speedy recovery.''
