Bruce Arians back in Indianapolis after hospital stay


Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is back home after spending a night in a Baltimore area hospital on Sunday.

Arians was checked into a hospital in Baltimore Sunday morning prior to the Colts playoff match up with the Baltimore Ravens. Arians had missed practice on Thursday due to flu-like symptoms and again complained he felt ill during the team’s breakfast leading to him being checked into a hospital for observation. Assistant coach Clyde Christensen handled the play-calling duties in Arians’ absence in the Colts 24-9 loss to the Ravens.

According to the Associated Press, Arians returned to Indianapolis on Monday with a pair of team doctors along for the trip.

”He was in good spirits [and] is trending [in] right direction,” Colts owner Jim Irsay said in a text to the AP.

Arians is expected to interview with the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears for their head coaching jobs.

    i like arians a lot… seems like a stand up guy and could be a solid head coach. “flu-like syntomns” shouldn’t land someone in the hospital for a few days though, so hopefully all is well.

    “Flu like Symptoms”? My guess little ole Bruce played the old Ferris Bueller card as he was pissed he brought team to playoffs only to get pulled. Arians really stepped up game over the sweaty palms trick

    Applaud Pagano for his strength but he should of taken the year off.
