The couple of days after the Super Bowl are big ones in the sports talk industry, especially when you’re as big of a personality as FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd.

However, he has been absent from his show on FS1 for the past 2 days, and now he’s revealed the reason why.

In the below Instagram post, Cowherd reveals that he was having dinner with his wife on Saturday night when he had an intense pain in the right side of his chest. He was taken to the hospital, where it was discovered that he had a small blood clot in his right lung:

Cowherd explains that he was given morphine and was out for about 16 hours, but still managed to watch the Super Bowl from the hospital. He also says the incident was not COVID-19 related, as he tested negative for the virus twice during his hospital stay.

When he’s able to return to his show remains to be seen, but thankfully, he’s at home and seems to be recovering quickly. Hopefully, he’ll be back on TV in no time and feeling as good as possible after the scary incident.
