Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was taken to a Kansas City-area hospital after the team’s 30-24 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday afternoon.

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.

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.

Later, Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu players took to social media to wish their Reid a speedy recovery.

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.
