Kansas City Chiefs HC Andy Reid is officially back at 1 Arrowhead Drive after a brief stint in the hospital following Sunday’s game.

Reid was feeling ill after he addressed the team following the loss to the Chargers. He was taken to the hospital and admitted out of an abundance of caution. Reid was expected to return to team facilities and resume his full head-coaching duties yesterday. Speaking to Chiefs TE Travis Kelce in a recent interview, Touchdown Wire’s Doug Farrar was able to confirm as much.

“Coach Reid is doing good. He’s back in the building, being himself. He seems just fine. And he’s motivated,” Kelce told Farrar. “He’s presented a challenge to everyone in this building to rise to the occasion, and man up, and fix the mistakes. That’s all you can ask for in a head coach, is to present that challenge, and give us tools and techniques to teach us to overcome the adversity we have at hand. And that’s being below .500.”

Kelce has a unique perspective, being in Kansas City for nine seasons, he’s one of the few players currently on the roster to have experienced the type of adversity the Chiefs face. Kelce and Daniel Sorensen are the only players on the team who experienced the Chiefs’ 1-5 start to the 2015 NFL season.

“I think my first or second year in the league was the last time this team was under .500 under Andy Reid. I might be the only one in the building that’s felt that outside of the coaches that are still here,” Kelce continued. “Knowing how much success we’ve had, there’s a lot of confidence we’ll get this thing going, and we’ll figure out exactly what we need to moving forward.”

Kelce knows exactly what it takes for the team to dig themselves out of their current rut. He also knows that the team has the right type of leaders in place to get the job done, from Coach Reid to the guys in the locker room.
