Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Gary Kubiak was taken off the field just after halftime of Sunday Night’s Houston Texans match-up against the Indianapolis Colts after needing medical care. He is being taken care of at a local hospital and will remain there until at least Tuesday morning according to a Houston Texans press release. His family is with him.
“Our primary concern is of course with Gary’s health and well-being,” Texans Executive VP of Football Operations and General Manager Rick Smith said. “There have been so many people throughout the city and across the country that have reached out to express their love and support and we are thankful for everyone’s thoughts and prayers. Gary is alert, coherent and in good spirits. He is continuing to be evaluated and monitored.”
Kubiak went through a variety of tests at the hospital last night, it was reported by John McClain Sunday night that some of those tests came back negative for a stroke or heart attack. Kubiak felt dizziness and went down to a knee on his way off the sideline before laying down on the ground and was immediately attended to by Texans medical staff.
The Texans thanked fans, media and the NFL for the concern shown by all parties and ask for the privacy of the Kubiak family.
UPDATE: 6:50pm – Ian Rapoport, National Insider for NFL Network, reports that Gary Kubiak did suffer a transient ishemic attack (TIA). The ‘mini-stroke’ is treatable.
