ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Cardinals HC Bruce Arians has been hospitalized after experiencing chest pains, following Sunday’s loss to the Vikings.
According to Schefter, medical tests on Arians have so far have been “favorable”, but this is obviously a very concerning situation.
Arians was previously taken to a hospital back in August for what was thought to be a kidney stone. However, it was determined that he was dealing with dealing with symptoms associated with Diverticulitis, a condition which affects the digestive tract.
Arians was released from the hospital soon after and returned to the team.
Arians, 63, was hired by the Cardinals back in 2013 after he filled in for Colts HC Chuck Pagano while he was fighting cancer and managed to win Coach of the Year. During his four years with the Cardinals, Arians has led them to a record of 38-19-1 (66.4 percent), which includes two playoff appearances and a trip to the NFC Championship game last year.
We’ll have more regarding Arians’ condition as the news is available.
