Wade Phillips gets in sideline collision, taken to hospital (VIDEO)

Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, at 69 years of age, is one of the oldest and most savvy coaches in the league.

Unfortunately, he got extremely lucky during Sunday’s game against the Chargers, when Melvin Gordon plowed into him on a sideline collision. Here’s what it looked like.

Phillips was taken to the hospital, but seems to be OK.

Linebackers coach Reggie Herring took over for Phillips, and maybe that’s why the Chargers were able to put together a second-half surge to get back in the game.
