A report is out from NFL reporter James Palmer saying that Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid actually left Arrowhead Stadium in an ambulance following the team’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3 on Sunday afternoon.
Nothing more is known but Palmer does frame the news under a larger banner of precaution, which at least brings a bit of relief to the worry about Reid’s health. Here is Palmer’s full take:
Adam Schefter followed up with a bit more on the situation, saying Reid was in “good spirits” on the ride away for a closer medical check.
We were hoping to see Reid turn the corner today statistically speaking and pick up his 100th win as the Chiefs head coach. He’s been sitting at 99 overall since defeating the Cleveland Browns in Week 1, and if he’s able to crest that hill, he will be the first coach in NFL history to do so.
While Chiefs Kingdom is undoubtedly frustrated on a day like today after the team’s second consecutive heartbreaking loss (following last week’s fourth-quarter loss to the Baltimore Ravens in primetime), football is nothing more than a game. The only real concern here is about the health of those involved, and of course, we’re praying along with everyone else that Reid will be okay.
Others feel the same way. Tyrann Mathieu speaks for all of us with his post, and other former Chiefs players also weighed in. Check out the responses on Twitter from players and NFL personnel.
More details to come as we get them, Chiefs Kingdom.
