 NAPA, Calif. (AP) -Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin was taken to a hospital Monday to get treatment for a viral infection.
Kiffin, 32, had been sick for a few days and hadn't gotten better, a team spokesman said.
Kiffin, who led the Raiders to a 27-23 win over Arizona on Saturday in his first game as an NFL head coach, looked fine after the game but continued to feel ill. On Sunday, Oakland canceled a scheduled conference call between Kiffin and reporters.
The Raiders returned to practice Monday and some players weren't even aware Kiffin was absent until they took the field.
Kiffin, hired on Jan. 23 to replace the fired Art Shell, is the youngest head coach in the NFL.
