Right now, it’s unclear if Reid is still in the hospital as the update from the team was a bit ambiguous in that regard. It’s also not clear what his status for the upcoming Week 4 game against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, will be given this health scare. The good news is that Reid is being monitored by professionals and seems to be in good health. Hopefully, he’ll be back in the saddle soon, helping the team get back on the right track.
