Dan Meers, the man who plays the Chiefs’ KC Wolf mascot who was seriously injured while rehearsing a pregame skit two weeks ago, has been released from the hospital and is resting at home.

“He is facing a long road of recovery,” said his attorney, Tim Dollar.

Meers, 46, was injured after an apparent glitch involving a bungee cord caused the skit to go horribly wrong during a Nov. 24 rehearsal at Arrowhead. Meers careened into seats in the upper deck of the stadium, where he suffered serious injuries that “appear to be related to the manner in which a third-party company secured the riggings,” Dollar said last week.

The injuries required surgery, but Dollar would not specify the injuries only saying Meers had full use of his arms and legs.
