Longtime ESPN college football and NFL host Laura Rutledge was noticeably absent from coverage this weekend.

Unfortunately, Laura and her daughter, Reese, were under the weather.

"A little update: I’m not great at slowing down but this week my body has forced me to. Unfortunately too sick to make it to SEC Nation but the show is in great hands with @MartySmithESPN . Reese is also sick so she’s taking a break from her picks. Hoping to be back soon!" she announced.

Laura and her husband, Josh Rutledge, have one daughter together named Reese.

The happy couple was married in 2013.

Josh is a former professional baseball player. He played for the Rockies from 2012-14 and the Red Sox from 2015-17.
