The Kansas City Chiefs received a scare on Sunday when head coach Andy Reid had to be taken to the hospital following the team's game against the Chargers.

Reid was reportedly feeling ill and was transported to the hospital via ambulance. Thankfully, he was released on Monday.

According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, today brought another positive update for Reid. The 63-year-old coach returned to work.

Health is more important than football, so we're ecstatic to see that Reid is doing fine and has returned to his normal routine. Hopefully he doesn't have any more situations like this during the season.

Now that Reid is back to work though, he has to try and figure out how to get his team going in the right direction. Kansas City is 1-2 following Sunday's loss to the Chargers, and if not for a second-half comeback in Week 1 against Cleveland, the Chiefs could be 0-3.

Offense isn't the problem for Kansas City, but the team's defense has struggled mightily. If that side of the ball can't make improvements, the pressure on Patrick Mahomes and his offensive counterparts to carry the load will increase.
