Gary Kubiak received medical treatment used to treat stroke symptoms after collapsing at halftime of Sunday night's game between the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis ColtsESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Kubiak was also reportedly prescribed medication.

As of Monday, Kubiak was still in a Houston-area hospital being tested. After his collapse, it was quickly confirmed by the Texans that he did not suffer a heart attack. Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke suggested that exhaustion and dehydration may have played a role.

The Texans held a 21-3 halftime lead before allowing a second half comeback and losing, 27-24. After the game, several Texans players said that Kubiak's absence affected their performance.

There is no word yet on how much time Kubiak will take to recover. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips took over head coaching duties during the second half, and could act as interim head coach if Kubiak is sidelined for an extended period.
