Andy Reid Resting After Leaving Arrowhead Stadium in Ambulance Due to Illness

Chiefs coach Andy Reid left Arrowhead Stadium in an ambulance after the team's 30–24 loss to the Chargers on Sunday, per NFL Network's James Palmer

Kansas City announced the head coach was not feeling well after the game and special teams coordinator Dave Toub took his place during postgame media availability. The Chiefs later released a statement that Reid was in stable condition. 

"Head Coach Andy Reid felt ill at the conclusion of the game," the statement read. "He was evaluated by our medical staff in the locker room, & a precaution, was transported to The University of Kansas Health System for further evaluation. Coach is doing well, currently resting & in stable condition."

Players were unaware he wasn't feeling well but were told that he should be fine, according to NFL Network. Kansas City safety Tyrann Mathieu took to Twitter to wish his coach a healthy recovery.

"I'm praying for my Head Coach & I'm hoping you can send up prayers with me!!" Mathieu said in a tweet. "One of the best men & teachers I've been around!!! GOD please show us your mercy!"

All signs point to Kansas City being cautious with the 63-year-old head coach.
