"He's doing well. You guys know him almost as well as me and he's chomping at the bit," Crews said.

According to the NFL Network, Reid left GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium in an ambulance, and players were unaware at first that the longtime NFL coach wasn’t feeling well. ESPN reported the 63-year-old Super Bowl-winning head coach was treated for dehydration.

Temperatures were in the 90s during the game.

Crews told reporters that special teams coach Dave Toub would fill in for Reid to answer questions. Crews said at the time everything looked fine but Reid was getting "checked out" as a precautionary measure.

Reid has been the Chiefs’ head coach since the 2013 season. He took over after a long career with the Philadelphia Eagles. He helped guide the Eagles to the 2004 Super Bowl but they lost to the New England Patriots. Reid finally won his first Super Bowl with the Chiefs in 2020, defeating the San Francisco 49ers.
