Texans coach Gary Kubiak collapsed on the field as he was leaving at halftime of Houston’s Sunday night game against the Colts.

Kubiak was taken to a local hospital in an ambulance with his family and was conscious, according to the Texans. The team said Kubiak did not have a heart attack and was in stable condition, Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com reports.

“He had an episode, he was light-headed and dizzy,” Houston general manager Rick Smith told NBC during a postgame interview. “He was evaluated by a number of specialists … he is awake and coherent.

“… Hopefully, Gary will be back with us tomorrow.”

The 52-year-old Kubiak fell to his knees and grimaced when he collapsed, but he never lost consciousness.

“It was really weird,” Texans quarterback Case Keenum said. “Someone came in [to the locker room] and started yelling for a trainer. They said that he had passed out and we were all very worried.”

Kubiak lay on the ground for several minutes and was surrounded by medical personnel, including Texans head trainer Geoff Kaplan. After a few minutes, Kubiak sat up and spoke with those surrounding him before eventually being strapped to a stretcher and taken off the field.
