Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was hospitalized after dealing with chest pains, and Arians tweeted Tuesday that he’s “doing good.”

ESPN reporter Adam Schefter broke news of the coach’s malady on Twitter Monday morning.

Cardinals media relations executive Mark Dalton confirmed the report soon after.

It’s not the first time Arians has had to make a trip to the hospital in 2016. He left one of the team’s preseason practices with stomach pains back in August. Arians wound up staying overnight and was diagnosed with diverticulitis.

If his last trip to the hospital is any indication, he’ll have his players firmly in his corner for support.

Mathieu, who has a close relationship with Arians, said he already heard from the coach Monday.

Arizona fell to 4-5-1 on Sunday after losing to Minnesota on the road. The Cardinals will face Atlanta in Week 12, with their coach on the sideline, as the team announced that Arians had been released from the hospital Monday evening.

It was quite the scare, but that’s great news that Arians is alright.
