Today has gone poorly for the Tennessee Titans in just about every way. Earlier during the team's game against the Colts, defensive coordinator Dean Pees has been taken to the hospital from Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis.

The Titans haven't released what exactly happened, only that he started dealing with an issue during the second quarter in the booth and had to leave the game.

From ProFootballTalk on Dean Pees:

The team announced in the second quarter of their game that Pees has been taken to a hospital after experiencing an undisclosed medical condition.

“Titans Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees was experiencing a medical issue during the game,” the statement read. “He was tended to by medical personnel and was transported to a local hospital for further observation.”

Pees is in his first year with the Titans. He previously served as defensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens for six seasons.

Earlier today, the Titans lost Marcus Mariota to an apparent hand injury. He has been replaced by Blaine Gabbart.

Our thoughts go out to Pees. Hopefully he is okay.
