Arizona Cardinals defensive backs coach Donnie Henderson was taken to a hospital after fainting before the game Saturday night against the Dallas Cowboys, the Associated Press reported.

Henderson, a former Ravens assistant, fainted while driving down the ramp into the team's parking lot and then hit a cement post, but he was alert and conscious as he was taken to an area hospital.

Henderson, 53, who was born in Baltimore, began his NFL coaching career with the Ravens in 1999 as the assistant defensive backs coach until being promoted in 2000 to coach defensive backs.

During his tenure with the Ravens from 1999 to 2003, the Ravens ranked second in the NFL with 88 interceptions.

Henderson is in his 10th year as an NFL assistant but first with Arizona. Last season he was out of the NFL after serving as defensive backs coach for Jacksonville in 2008.
