The Chiefs fell to 1-2 on Sunday with a 30-24 home loss to the Chargers. This is the first time since Patrick Mahomes' arrival in Kansas City that he hasn't started 3-0.

There were questions about Mahomes' uncharacteristic two-interception performance and Kansas City's defense, but Chiefs coach Andy Reid wasn't the one to answer them postgame. He left Arrowhead Stadium in an ambulance.

Later Sunday night, the Chiefs said that Reid is "doing well, currently resting & in stable condition" after he was taken to the University of Kansas Health System for further evaluation.

The move was precautionary, according to multiple reports. NFL Network's Jason La Canfora said Reid was dehydrated but that there were no serious medical concerns beyond that.

Reid addressed the team before he left the stadium, Mahomes and special teams coordinator Dave Toub said.

Toub took questions from the media in Reid's absence. He said Reid told his team it needed to limit turnovers.

Reid is 92-39 in Kansas City with one Super Bowl win and another Super Bowl berth. He will look to be back on the sideline in Week 4 as the Chiefs try to get to .500 against the Eagles.
