Kim Pegula, owner and president of BUFFALO BILLS, is being treated for “unexpected health problems.”
The South Korean-born entrepreneur, 53, became the first female team president in NFL history in 2018.
Kim is married to billionaire Terry Pegula, who co-owns the NHL team Buffalo Sabers with the Bills.
A statement from the Pegula family said: “We are very grateful for the progress she has made over the past few days.
“She has an excellent team of medical experts at her side.
“We ask that you keep Kim and our family in your prayers and that you respect our need for privacy.”
The Bills responded on Twitter: “The entire Bills Mafia sends you our love and prayers Kim.
“We are with you and the whole Pegula family.”
It’s unclear whether Kim is being treated in hospital or at home for the unspecified condition.
An orphan from Seoul, Pegula came to America as a young girl and was adopted by Ralph and Marilyn Kerr in 1974.
She grew up in Fairport, New York and married fracking kingpin Terry in 1993.
The couple have three children together, including tennis player Jessica, who has reached the quarterfinals of two Grand Slams.
The Bills are currently preparing for a minicamp ahead of the start of their NFL preseason on Aug. 13.
