Ted Crews, the Chiefs executive vice-president of communications, gave a briefing on Monday to reporters about Reid’s health and he had nothing but good things to say. In fact, he said we should expect to see Reid back at Arrowhead within the next 24 hours.
“Coach Reid has been released. He is in great spirits, doing well. You guys know him almost as good as me, and he’s chomping at the bit. He’ll probably be here later today or in the morning to be back at work.”
The Chiefs are expecting Andy Reid back at Arrowhead in the next 24 hours.
According to reports, Reid originally felt ill late in the game on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium, a contest which ended up turning into a 30-24 loss for the Chiefs against their division rivals, the Los Angeles Chargers. Following the game, the Chiefs decided to follow every precaution and Reid left the stadium via an ambulance where he was looked over by hospital personnel.
The reports on Reid following the game were positive but the Chiefs coach still remained under evaluation although they termed him in “stable condition.” No details have been made known about the specifics of Reid’s condition or how exactly he was feeling ill. Reid is likely to answer questions from the media when he arrives back at Arrowhead or at some point in the near future.
The Chiefs are currently 1-2 and are preparing to face the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday on the road for their Week 4 matchup.
