Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is doing well and in stable condition after leaving Arrowhead Stadium with an illness, the Chiefs announced Sunday night.

Reid had left the stadium in an ambulance due to feeling ill after Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. The situation seemed to be more precautionary than serious, as Chiefs players were reportedly told their coach should be OK.

The 63-year-old Reid was apparently well enough to stay on the sideline during the game, a 30-24 Chiefs loss that knocked the team down to 1-2 and last place in the AFC West.

It was a frustrating game for Reid's team, which committed turnovers on its first three drives and allowed four touchdowns by Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert. A pass interference penalty on fourth-and-9 allowed the Chargers' game-winning drive to continue and the game ended on a failed Hail Mary attempt.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes told reporters after the game that Reid "seemed fine" during and after the game, per Fox 4's Harold Kuntz. Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu also tweeted prayers for the coach's health:
