Kansas City Chiefs linebackers coach Britt Reid, son of head coach Andy Reid, won't be at the Super Bowl game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after being involved in a car accident.
The Chiefs assistant coach was involved in a multi-vehicle pile-up in Missouri on Thursday that the team confirmed resulted in the injury of two young children.
The Kansas City Police Department (KCDP) said in a statement that one child injured in the accident was in critical condition, and they were conducting an investigation that could take weeks.
The Chiefs said on Saturday they were still in the information-gathering process and had no further comment.
Reid, 35, has been with the team since his father was hired by the franchise in 2013. He reportedly suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash
The Chiefs went through a final practice at their Kansas City, Missouri, home field before boarding a charter for the trip to Florida.
The accident did not appear to be a distraction for the Chiefs, with a pool report indicating players appeared in good spirits during the morning walk-through session.
"Good energy," Andy Reid said. "It's important to have that.
"This was just kind of a review day, so we go back through all the situations and make sure we have all those covered."
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chiefs opted to spend Super Bowl week at home and fly to Tampa only the day before the NFL championship game.
The Chiefs will face the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV aiming to become the first team to win back-to-back titles since the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005.
