Gary Kubiak, the head coach of the Houston Texans, was hospitalized after collapsing in the middle of the NFL team's game against the Colts on Sunday.
Kubiak doubled over in “extraordinary pain” just before halftime.
As the teams were heading to the locker rooms, medical officials rushed to his side. The coach reportedly wasn’t opening his eyes, though he was talking.
Medical personnel finally managed to get the 52-year-old 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 assistant coach who took over for Gary, said that the hospital trip was precautionary.
Kubiak's "heart rate was fine and his pulse was fine,” luckily.
