ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the family of Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said he’s “feeling good” following collapsing on the field Sunday night at halftime of the Texans game with the Indianapolis Colts.
Schefter reported for ESPN.com the following:
“Kubiak, who has been at a Houston hospital since Sunday night, was treated with an IV medicine — tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) — designed to break up blood clots.”
The NFL Insider, Schefter, also reported:
“Doctors are conducting tests Monday to determine whether he could have suffered a stroke.”
This is a scary situation for Kubiak and his family and we hope for the best in recovery for Coach Kubiak.
Kubiak, 52, has been the Texans head coach since the 2006 season and is a former NFL player, assistant coach and offensive coordinator.
The head coach has led the Texans to two AFC South titles the past two seasons, but this year, the Texans are currently 2-6 overall, with those six losses coming in their past six games.
Houston will next play on Sunday when they travel to face the Arizona Cardinals who are 4-4 on the season.
Defensive coordinator and former NFL head coach Wade Phillips took over as the head coach for the second half of Sunday’s game. Houston led 21-3 at halftime Sunday night before losing 27-24.
