Arians OK, Released From Hospital Monday Evening

The Arizona Cardinals tough loss the Minnesota Vikings was the furthest thing on their minds following the breaking news Monday morning head coach Bruce Arians had been hospitalized.

This is the second time this season Arians has been admitted to the hospital. Back in August the popular Valley figure was admitted for stomach pains while the Cards were training with the Chargers in San Diego leading up to their second pre-season game.

The good news is Arians was released from the hospital Monday night and could be back at the facilities soon according to team president Michael Bidwill.

“When things like this happen I think it really punctuates how fragile life can be,” wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald told the assembled media Monday after at the teams’ Tempe facilities. “I think at times when you’re in the midst of a season and things are not going the way you want them to go you lose sight of that…this is life and this is his health. We want to turn things around [on the field] but we want to make sure Coach is good.”

The Cardinals (4-5-1) are off Tuesday and will return to practice Wednesday. They play the NFC South-leading Falcons Sunday in Atlanta.
