Texans Coach Gary Kubiak will remain hospitalized for at least 24 more hours after collapsing on the field at halftime of Houston’s 27-24 loss to Indianapolis on Sunday night.

The team released an update on his condition yesterday morning, saying that he “went through a battery of tests.”

The Texans said that he experienced “dizziness and a light-headed feeling,” on Sunday night before being taken by ambulance to the hospital, but did not say what caused the problem.

General Manager Rick Smith said “Gary is alert, coherent and in good spirits. He is continuing to be evaluated and monitored.”

The team said the 52-year-old Kubiak is with his family and more details will be released as they are available.
