Gary Kubiak taken to hospital after collapsing, did not suffer heart attack (Video)
Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak was taken to the hospital on Sunday after collapsing while walking of the field at Reliant Stadium during halftime of his team’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Kubiak showed signs of being in pain prior to walking off the field. As he was around the 25-yard line, he collapsed and kneeled down in obvious pain. A stretcher came out to get him and he was taken to the hospital with his family accompanying him.
The video below shared by David Nunio of ABC in Houston shows Kubiak in pain:
Although Kubiak clearly was in a lot of pain, he thankfully did not suffer a heart attack, the team said.
“All his vital signs are good, he did not have a heart attack but they’re still checking on him,” defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said after the game.
Phillips, who has previous experience as a head coach, served as the head coach in the second half of the game. Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison called the offensive plays in place of Kubiak, who usually handles those duties.
The Texans blew a 21-3 halftime lead and lost 27-24.
