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.
