Gary Kubiak reportedly suffered mini-stroke during Sunday night’s game

Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak suffered a mini-stroke just before halftime of Sunday night's game, but the good news is he should recover quickly.

Kubiak had the frightening incident as the team went into the locker room for halftime. NBC cameras showed him holding his head in his hands right before he left the sideline, and then he collapsed while walking off the field. Kubiak was put on a stretcher and taken by ambulance to the hospital.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport had the details of what happened to Kubiak:

Rapoport also said that the kind of stroke Kubiak had often has no residual effects, and he can recover quickly.

Like Denver coach John Fox, who will have heart surgery this week, the team is likely to be extra careful and make sure Kubiak is back to full strength before he returns to the sideline.
