Texans-Colts: Houston Head Coach Gary Kubiak Stretchered Off Field

Get well, Coach. - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Scary moment after the end of a fun first half as Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak collapsed as he was leaving the field.

While the first half was a lot of fun for Houston fans, a scary scene took place in Reliant Stadium as the teams were jogging off the field. 

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak collapsed. According to NBC, no one saw what exactly happened, but a medical crew was quick to respond and attentive to the head coach. According to Michelle Tafoya, Kubiak was in visible pain. She said that he was not able to open his eyes and could barely move. Eventually, Kubiak did sit up and talk to his immediate responders, but he was stretchered off the field.

It was reported that Kubiak was taken to a local hospital for precautionary measures. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will likely assume head coaching duties for the remainder of the game while offensive coordinator Rick Dennison will call plays for the offense, but the real concern of any Houston fan is the health and well-being of Gary Kubiak.
