UPDATE: 9:30 p.m. Sunday The Chiefs released a statement on Reid’s condition:
Head Coach Andy Reid felt ill at the conclusion of the game. He was evaluated by our medical staff in the locker room, and as a precaution, was transported to The University of Kansas Health System for further evaluation. Coach is doing well, currently resting and in stable condition
We first knew something was afoot when Reid was not available for his customary post-game press conference, as reported by the Kansas City Star’s Herbie Teope.
Chiefs announce coach Andy Reid is feeling ill, so he’s not addressing media out of caution. Special teams coordinator Dave Toub is handling postgame presser.— Herbie Teope (@HerbieTeope) September 26, 2021
Special-teams coordinator (and assistant head coach) Dave Toub filled in for the session with reporters.
Then there were reports that after being checked over by team doctors, Reid was taken from the Truman Sports Complex in an ambulance. Still ... the reports indicated that the move was precautionary.
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.— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) September 26, 2021
Andy Reid's removal from the stadium via ambulance is precautionary I'm told. He wasn't feeling great and was dehydrated but no serious concern about him medically— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) September 26, 2021
Later, Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu players took to social media to wish their Reid a speedy recovery.
I’m praying for my Head Coach & I’m hoping you can send up prayers with me!! One of the best men & teachers I’ve been around!!! GOD please show us your mercy!— Tyrann Mathieu (@Mathieu_Era) September 26, 2021
We join Mathieu — and Chiefs fans everywhere — in hoping Reid will soon be released from the hospital and make a full recovery.
We will keep you posted on any other information that may develop.
