Kubiak just collapsed onto the field as the teams were running off the field at half. Putting on stretcher. Oh, Lord.— Bob Kravitz (@bkravitz) November 3, 2013
Surreal scene here in Houston. Everybody is on their feet, watching things unfold around the 23 yard line. Still be worked on.— Bob Kravitz (@bkravitz) November 3, 2013
After the game, Texans GM Rick Smith said Kubiak was in "stable" condition. On Monday, Nov. 4, it was reported he had suffered a mini-stroke. On Tuesday, Nov. 5, he was cleared to leave the hospital, but Wade Phillips served as interim head coach for Week 10.
