The sting of the Chiefs’ 30-24 loss to the Chargers on Sunday lessened for Kansas City fans after news that coach Andy Reid left Arrowhead Stadium in an ambulance.

Reid, 63, reportedly was dealing with dehydration on a hot late September day in Kansas City.

While Reid’s removal from the stadium was precautionary and he was “doing well”, according to the team late Sunday night, Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu shared a message for his coach 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.

Safety Juan Thornhill also wrote a message for Reid.

“Sending Prayers up for Coach Reid,” Thornhill wrote.

Chiefs fans and supporters of other teams shared their concern for Reid with messages of encouragement on Twitter.
