When Gary Kubiak collapsed on the field at halftime of the Houston Texans Sunday night football game with the Indianapolis Colts, some people thought he might have suffered a heart attack. ESPN reported on Nov. 4 that it was not a heart attack and Kubiak’s family said he is resting well in the hospital.
It appears that Kubiak will spend at least one more night in the Houston area hospital as they doctors determine whether or not the 52-year-old coach suffered a stroke.
Family members told the press that Kubiak is “felling good” and resting in the hospital after the scare. He was treated with an IV meant to break up blood clots after being admitted to the hospital.
The Houston Texans, who led by 21 when Kubiak collapsed, lost to the Colts, 27-24, and looked nothing like the team that stormed off to the big lead. It is clear their minds were on their head coach, and Texans’ GM Rick Smith said the number one concern was the health of Kubiak.
Wade Phillips has been leading the team in practice with Gary Kubiak hospitalized, and there is no word on if Kubiak will return soon, and if not, who will be the interim head coach until he does.
