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.” He did not have a heart attack, and is now in “stable condition,” according to People.
