Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown was treated for a minor medical issue in Phoenix and won't attend Sunday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

The 79-year-old Brown has been the team's owner since his father, NFL legend Paul Brown, passed away on Aug. 5, 1991. Mike Brown also serves as the team's president and general manager.

"Bengals president Mike Brown had a minor medical situation this morning in Phoenix," the Bengals said in a statement. "He is being treated, and for precautionary purposes, he will not attend this evening's game against the Arizona Cardinals. He will travel back to Cincinnati shortly."

Last month, Brown announced he was ceding more day-to-day control to head coach Marvin Lewis and his daughter, executive vice president Katie Blackburn.
