Indianapolis, IN, United States (4E Sports) – Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians has been discharged from the hospital Monday afternoon after his blood pressure stabilized.
Earlier, a team spokesman said all tests on Arians came back negative and the doctors were simply waiting for his blood pressure to normalize.
Arians was hospitalized before the Colts’ AFC wild-card playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens due to an undisclosed illness. Quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen called the plays in his absence.
According to ESPN.com sources, Arians became dizzy Sunday morning. He insisted to leave the hospital to coach the game but doctors would not allow him.
Without Arians, the Colts’ offense struggled, leading to a 24-9 loss to the Ravens.
Arians took over as Colts’ interim coach when coach Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia in late September, leading the team to a 9-3 record.
Later this week, the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles are scheduled to interview Arians for head coaching job.
The Cleveland Browns also requested permission from the Colts to interview Arians.
