Gary Kubiak collapses at Reliant Stadium

Gary Kubiak collapses during the Houston Texans' clash with the Indianapolis Colts.

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has been taken to hospital after collapsing during tonight's AFC South clash with the Indianapolis Colts.

The 52-year-old sank to the ground as the two teams walked off the field for half time and was stretchered off after being attended to by medical staff.

Early reports have not specified the exact problem, although NBC have confirmed that it was not a heart attack.

Meanwhile, the Texans have announced that he did not lose consciousness and was talking to doctors treating him.

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips has taken over his duties for the remainder of the game, with the Texans currently leading 21-3 thanks to three touchdowns from Andre Johnson.

The incident follows on from that of Denver Broncos head coach John Fox, who will require heart surgery after collapsing while playing golf yesterday.
