BALTIMORE -- Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who the Eagles said they plan to interview for their head coaching position, will miss today’s playoff game at Baltimore against the Ravens due to an illness.

According to a Colts public relations official, Arians was taken to a local hospital “and is doing fine.”

The team says it doesn’t know any more about the details.

Arians, the former head coach at Temple, took over the Colts this season when head coach Chuck Pagano was undergoing treatment for leukemia. The Colts went 9-3 with Arians guiding the team.
