His team was playing against the Los Angeles Chargers before the incident. Following the Chiefs' 30-24 loss, he was transported to the nearest hospital in an ambulance.

He even missed the post-game news conference. Special teams coordinator Dave Toub told reporters Reid addressed the team right after the game before being transported to the hospital.

REID’S CAREER

Reid has been the Chiefs’ head coach since 2013, and before he joined the team during that season, he had a long career coaching the Philadelphia Eagles.

The California native won his first Super Bowl with his current team in 2020, defeating the San Francisco 49ers. He is currently one win away from his 100th victory with the Chiefs, and if he wins, he will make NFL history.
