The head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, Andy Reid , was brought after losing to the Los Angeles Chargers of the Arrowhead Stadium in a local hospital after he felt ill.
The 63-year-old has been treated for dehydration and is expected to get well again, a source told ESPN.
“Head coach Andy Reid felt sick at the end of the game,” said the Chiefs in a statement on Sunday evening. “He was examined by our medical staff in the locker room and taken to the University of Kansas Health System for further evaluation as a precaution. The coach is doing well, he is currently resting and in a stable condition. “
Reid was coach throughout the Chiefs’ 30:24 defeat, but transferred media work after the game to Special Teams Coordinator Dave Toub.
“He just didn’t feel comfortable after the game,” said Toub. “He spoke to the team and it was a good conversation. Pretty much: ‘You have to stop the turnovers.’ ”
Reid was on his way to his 100th win with the Chiefs (including the playoffs) but four turnovers killed them against the Chargers, bringing Kansas City’s record to 2-1.
