Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak collapsed on the field as both his team and the Indianapolis Colts were heading to the locker room at halftime on Sunday night. The 52-year-old Kubiak appeared to be conscious as NBC's television cameras showed him being attended to by medical personnel. He was taken off the field on a stretcher and transported to a local hospital.

NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya reported that Kubiak was speaking and looked as if he was in pain. Tafoya also reported that Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips was told that taking Kubiak to the hospital in an ambulance "is purely precautionary."

Phillips took over head coaching duties.
