Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees was involved in an on-field collision during pregame of Sunday’s NFC South game against the Saints and was transported to a local New Orleans hospital, the team announced.
“He was stable, alert and responsive and has been transported to University Medical Center New Orleans for medical testing,” the team said in a statement.
Peas will not coach Sunday’s game versus the Saints as a result, and linebackers coach Frank Bush will serve as interim defensive play-caller for the game.
The Falcons (5-8) kick off against the Saints (4-9) at 1 p.m. ET.
