This isn’t the first health scare Arians has had this year. He was rushed to the hospital earlier this in the year when the Cardinals were in San Diego this preseason and released the following morning (more on that here).
The Cardinals have had a very difficult season thus far, entering Week 12 with a 4-5-1 record. For a team that had Super Bowl aspirations, it’s been a season full of disappointment and frustration.
After losing to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, linebacker Kevin Minter said the team is “desperate” to turn things around. Needless to say, stress levels are high within Arizona’s locker room.
We’re wishing Arians nothing but the best and a speedy recovery as he gets checked out further.
