Andy Reid update: Kansas City Chiefs release statement after coach was taken to hospital following Sunday's game
Football fans everywhere were concerned by the earlier news that Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid was taken to the hospital following Sunday’s game.
The Chiefs shared an encouraging update on Reid Sunday via Twitter:
Head Coach Andy Reid felt ill at the conclusion of the game. He was evaluated by our medical staff in the locker room, & as a precaution, was transported to The University of Kansas Health System for further evaluation. Coach is doing well, currently resting & in stable condition
Reid, 63, was taken by ambulance to the hospital after Kansas City’s 30-24 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
“Coach just wasn’t feeling well,” Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub said after the game. “He did talk to the team.”
Some players were reportedly unaware that Reid wasn’t feeling well.
Chiefs announced Andy Reid was feeling ill, so he did not address media out of caution. I can confirm he left the stadium in an ambulance. Players didn’t know he wasn’t feeling well and were told he should be ok. Everything is pointing toward the Chiefs taking every precaution.
