KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid addressed reporters on Wednesday for the first time since falling ill on Sunday.

During the press conference Reid said he's feeling great and is focused on getting back to work.

"I'm feeling great first of all," Reid said. "It's good to be back, and we'll just get on business as usual here."

Seeing Reid feeling better isn't just a relief for Chiefs Kingdom, but also quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

"It's obviously a little concerning anytime you have to go to the hospital and do all that type of stuff," Mahomes said during the press conference. "But Rick Burkholder and those guys, they kept us informed and he's back and seems totally normal now."

Reid missed Sunday's post game conference and was transported to the University of Kansas Health System for further evaluation but officially returned to work on Tuesday.

Reid said the focus is now on fixing issues the team has had through the first three games as the team prepares to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

"Our guys are aware of it and we're gonna work to fix that and at the same time get ready for this good football team," he said.
