The hit occurred on a play where Phillips defense put points on the board thanks to an interception return for a touchdown.

Wade Phillips was carted off the field during Denver's Week 8 matchup with San Diego.

He remained down for several minutes as the medical staff assessed his condition.

Three weeks ago, on October 9, Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak left the stadium in an ambulance after a loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

The San Diego Chargers travel to Denver to take on the Broncos. LBs coach Reggie Herring is now calling the Broncos' defensive plays.

Phillips was also flown backwards on the sidelines during the Broncos' playoff win in January against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Phillips has helped make the Broncos defense into the brute force it is, and has given a lot of credit for the team making it to and eventually winning the Super Bowl past year.
