Andy Reid leaves stadium in ambulance after Chiefs’ loss to Chargers
According to James Palmer of NFL Network, Reid was “feeling ill” after the game, which was why the team immediately had him checked by medical personnel. While he was taken off through an ambulance, it is said to be just precautionary and his condition is not serious even though he was dehydrated and not feeling good.
Chiefs announced Andy Reid was feeling ill, so he did not address media out of caution. I can confirm he left the stadium in an ambulance. Players didn’t know he wasn’t feeling well and were told he should be ok. Everything is pointing toward the Chiefs taking every precaution.

Andy Reid's removal from the stadium via ambulance is precautionary I'm told. He wasn't feeling great and was dehydrated but no serious concern about him medically

Moreover, per 41 KSHB, Andy Reid met with the Chiefs after the loss and before he was checked out by the medical team. The players did not have an idea about his condition, but star QB Patrick Mahomes highlighted that the 63-year-old coach looked fine when he talked to them.
“He came in and talked to us. He seemed fine, so that’s all I really know,” Mahomes shared
It’s still unknown what Reid was dealing with, but the team is expected to provide more details on his condition sooner rather than later. By the looks of it as well, fans don’t have anything to worry about as well.
The Chiefs fell to a 1-2 record following their Week 3 loss. It is also their second straight defeat after falling to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2. Hopefully Reid will be able to recover quickly in his illness to prepare Kansas City to bounce back when they face the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday.
