"He was evaluated by our medical staff in the locker room, & as a precaution, was transported to The University of Kansas Health System for further evaluation. Coach is doing well, currently resting & in stable condition."

Though Reid didn't attend the post-game news conference, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and special teams coordinator Dave Toub both told reporters that Reid spoke to the team after the game before going to the hospital.

"He just wasn't feeling well after the game," Toub said, the NFL reports. "He did talk to the team, and it was a good talk. Pretty much, 'You have to quit the turnovers.'"
