Gary Kubiak collapses on Reliant Stadium field before halftime

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

The Texans say that coach Gary Kubiak was hospitalized Sunday night for 'precautionary' reasons and did not have a heart attack.

Right before halftime of Sunday night's Texans-Colts game, Kubiak collapsed on the field and was tended to by medical professionals.

Kubiak was taken off the field on a stretcher by trainers. The Texans said he never lost consciousness.

Michelle Tafoya of NBC -- who was on the field -- reported that Kubiak appeared to be in "extraordinary pain" and didn't open his eyes that she could see. He was talking, though, per Tafoya.

Wade Phillips, NBC reports, who took over the head coaching duties for the remainder of the game told Tafoya that Kubiak being taken to the hospital was "purely precautionary" and that "his heart rate was fine and that his pulse was fine."

You can see Kubiak -- as highlighted by Sunday Night Football's broadcast before the second half began -- walking to the sidelines and then stopping and collapsing here.

Raw video footage shot by ABC in Houston paints a scary picture of Kubiak as he collapsed.
