Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was released from hospital Monday after he felt ill at the end of the team's Week 3 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, the club announced Monday, according to The Athletic's Nate Taylor.

Reid is expected to return to work later Monday or Tuesday morning.

The 63-year-old was treated for dehydration, a source told ESPN's Dan Graziano.

"Head coach Andy Reid felt ill at the conclusion of the game," the Chiefs said in a statement Sunday night. "He was evaluated by our medical staff in the locker room, and a precaution, was transported to the University of Kansas Health System for further evaluation. Coach is doing well, currently resting and in stable condition."

Reid coached the duration of the Chiefs' 30-24 loss but conceded media postgame duties to special teams coordinator Dave Toub.

"He just wasn't feeling well after the game," said Toub, according to Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star. "He did talk to the team, and it was a good talk. Pretty much, 'You have to quit the turnovers.'"

Reid was going for his 100th win with the Chiefs (including playoffs), but four giveaways doomed them against the Chargers and dropped Kansas City's record to 1-2.
