Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" is recuperating after a visit to the hospital on Wednesday, Sept. 17, according to reports today.

The Robertson family patriarch was noticeably absent from his granddaughter Sadie's debut on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" earlier this week. Consequently, Sadie answered questions about the 68-year-old's whereabouts during the show.

"My grandpa actually had to go to the hospital tonight," the 17-year-old model said, according to Life & Style. "So a lot of [family members] are with him."

Although the "DWTS" contestant did not reveal her grandfather's condition, it sounds as though the duck hunting mogul is on the mend.

"He's going to be fine," Sadie said.

Moreover, a rep for Robertson confirmed that he left the hospital and is now resting at his granddaughter's apartment in Los Angeles, according to Life & Style. "DWTS" fans can expect to see more "Duck Dynasty" stars on the show in the coming weeks since Sadie is competing for the mirrorball trophy this season. The teen revealed that the next round could see Mama Kay.

"Next week, a lot more family members will be here," she said. "I think Mama Kay is coming, and other members of the Robertson family will make their appearance."

Meanwhile, Phil Robertson remains an outspoken Christian who often refers to the Bible during interviews. Last year, he stirred controversy when discussing homosexuality with GQ magazine. Robertson's comments resulted in a suspension from A&E's "Duck Dynasty" for a period of time. However, many people praised Robertson for standing by his beliefs, and the patriarch recently defended himself.

"All I did was quote a passage of Scripture from antiquity," Robertson told Us Weekly. "They're mad at me, but I'm really just quoting what God said, so He's the one they have a problem with."

Today, Robertson is promoting his new book, unPHILtered: The Way I See It which looks deeper at his convictions. The inspiration and entertaining book offers Robertson's thoughtful and opinionated philosophy on life, including his business, marriage, and controversial topics such as gun control, taxes, prayer in school, and the government.
