Chiefs and Redskins plan a moment of silence for Las Vegas

The Kansas City Chiefs and the Washington Redskins square off on Monday Night Football, but the tragedy in Las Vegas is on their minds. They’ll pay tribute to it before the kickoff.

“There will be a moment of silence before tonight’s MNF game for those affected by the tragedy in Las Vegas,” wrote BJ Kissel, a reporter for the Chiefs.

More than 400 people were injured and more than 50 were killed in the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night, making it the largest mass shooting in U.S. history. Around the NFL, support has poured out.

“Terrible news coming out of my hometown,” Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray wrote on Twitter. “Praying for all affected by this horrific situation. My thoughts are with the victims and their families.”

The Oakland Raiders, who are planning a move to Vegas once their new stadium is built, put out a statement as well.

“The Raiders family is shocked and saddened by the tragedy in Las Vegas and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, families and first responders,” that statement read. “The heart of the Raider Nation goes out to Las Vegas.”

The suspected shooter, 64-year old Stephen Paddock, is reported to be deceased. Those in the area are being asked to donate blood to help the victims who are still fighting for their lives.
