The NFL pre-season is in full swing and while coaches up and down the country are looking at their rosters and having to make the decisions on who to cut, those choices just got harder in Arizona.

One of the main candidates for a Super Bowl push in 2016, the Arizona Cardinals could be forced to go through their second pre-season game without their head coach.

Bad news for Arizona

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was preparing with the team ahead of their clash with the San Diego Chargers when he suddenly became unwell.


Will the Cardinals make it to the NFC Championship game again this season? Have your say by signing up now to become a GMS writer:

Arians reported his condition to the medical staff who made the trip with the team and it appears that his situation could have worsened.

The Cardinals head coach has now been taken to a local San Diego hospital where he has undergone tests on his condition.

Updates are now expected to be limited for the next few hours as the medical staff attempt to find the cause of the problem.

For the Cardinals however, they have just days until they face the Chargers in their second warm up game and naturally, the team will be hoping to have Arians back on the sidelines.

Arizona tasted defeat in their opening pre-season game after a sub par performance took them to a 31-10 defeat at the hands of the Oakland Raiders.

Their second game against AFC West opposition could prove more insightful to how Arizona plan to take on the NFL this year.

If they are able to avoid injuries again next season, Arizona have a great shot at once again reaching the NFC Championship game.
