Texans head coach Gary Kubiak collapsed at halftime of Houston's matchup against the Colts. While information was not made immediately available, Kubiak could be seen surrounded by team doctors and local medical staff, as a gurney was prepared for the head coach. Kubiak was wheeled out on a stretcher. Kubiak was talking as he was taken to the ambulance, per NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya, and is taking a precautionary trip to the hospital.
Kubiak's Texans dominated the Colts throughout the first half of the Sunday Night Football feature. The frightening incident occurred near the 20-yard line as both teams made their way to the locker rooms. It is unclear what caused Kubiak to collapse or if he has any preexisting conditions. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will handle head coaching responsibilities for the rest of the game.
The Texans currently lead the Colts by a score of 21-3 at halftime of the Week 9 matchup.
Update: The Texans have ruled out a heart attack, per Tafoya.
Update: Coach Kubiak has been taken to a local hospital, he is conscious and his family is with him. #TexansGameday— Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) November 4, 2013
