So scary! The head coach of the Houston Texans collapsed in the middle of their game against the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 3 after experiencing “extraordinary pain.” He has been rushed to a nearby hospital.
A scary moment interrupted the Houston Texans-Indianapolis Colts Sunday Night Football game on Nov. 3 when the head coach of the Texans, Gary Kubiak, collapsed in pain just before the game’s halftime.
Gary Kubiak Collapses On The Field
After Gary went down as the teams were heading into the locker rooms at halftime, medical officials immediately rushed to his side. The coach reportedly appeared to be in “extraordinary pain” and wasn’t opening his eyes, though he was talking, according to NBC’s Michelle Tafoya.
The medical team finally managed to get Gary to sit up before loading him into an ambulance and transporting him to a nearby hospital.
Wade Phillips, the offensive coordinator for the Houston Texans and the coach who took over for Gary, said that the hospital trip was merely precautionary and that “his heart rate was fine and his pulse was fine.”
John Fox Rushed To The Hospital
The scary incident comes just one day after another NFL head coach was taken to a hospital. John Fox, the coach of the Denver Broncos, was rushed to the hospital after becoming short of breath and feeling heart attack-like symptoms in the middle of a round of golf.
It was revealed that John was suffering from a defective aortic valve and will need immediate surgery. He is expected to miss at least several weeks of coaching.
Hopefully, that’s a worst case scenario for Gary Kubiak as well.
