Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid was feeling ill and left Arrowhead Stadium in an ambulance following Sunday afternoon’s 30-24 loss to the visiting Los Angeles Chargers.

The team said Reid, 63, did not address the media postgame out of caution. Special teams coach Dave Toub took questions from reporters in his absence.

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

The Chiefs (1-2) turned the ball over four times against the Chargers (2-1), including two interceptions by Patrick Mahomes and lost fumbles by Tyreek Hill and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

“(Reid) came in and talked to us and he seemed fine on the sideline, as well,” Mahomes told the Kansas City Star.

Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu expressed his concern on Twitter.

“I’m praying for my Head Coach & I’m hoping you can send up prayers with me!! One of the best men & teachers I’ve been around!!! GOD please show us your mercy!” Mathieu wrote.
