Gary Kubiak treated with IV medicine designed to break up clots consistent with people who suffer strokes


Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak was held in a local hospital overnight for further medical examination after collapsing on the field during halftime of the team’s Sunday Night Football match up with the AFC South rival Indianapolis Colts.

Kubiak did not suffer a heart attack, but he did appear to be in obvious pain and precautionary measures were taken.

While an official diagnosis has not yet been announced, it is being reported that Kubiak received some IV’s as treatment. However, they weren’t your normal IV’s for dehydration.

From Adam Schefter of ESPN:


We should learn more in the meantime.

The Texans are hopeful that Kubiak can return sooner rather than later, because his absence certainly affected the way the Houston Texans offense ran in the second half.

Of course, his long-term health is more important than a game of football, so we will have to see what happens and whether he will be cleared to the sideline soon.
