Arizona Cardinals QB coach Freddie Kitchens underwent surgery Tuesday night to fix a defect in his aorta.

According to Cardinals vice president of media relations Mark Dalton, Kitchens began feeling ill during Tuesday's practice.

After being evaluated by the team's medical staff it was determined that he should be taken to the hospital for more evaluation and testing. During that process, a CT scan revealed a defect to his aorta that required surgery, which he had Tuesday night at the Arizona Heart Institute.

Dalton reports that doctors said the surgery went well and the early prognosis is positive.
