What is up with all of the NFL coaches that have gone down in recent days?? It was John Fox(Denver Broncos) on Saturday in Charlotte, becoming dizzy while playing golf and having to go to the hospital and they found out he did not have a heart attack, but he will have to have a heart valve replaced and he will miss up to two months of NFL coaching action…..

First feared was a heart attack for Fox and same story on Sunday night, with the Houston Texans’ coach Gary Kubiak and he fell to the ground, as he was leaving the field for halftime of the Texans-Colts game…..(Texans up 21-3 at half and Colts go on to win the game 27-24, as Wade Phillips took over for Kubiak, who was on his way to the hospital.)

from www.espn.com:

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

“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.

Kubiak remained hospitalized Monday morning and doctors were conducting more tests to determine what caused him to collapse, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. They still have not made a final determination. They believe dehydration could be a part of it, but they also are testing for more significant reasons, the source said.

    I think it is a testiment to how hard these guys actually work throughout the week. Another question which is kinda of on the same boat, Why are there so many hamstring injuries this year? Some of them (Miles Austin) keeping players out for significant time.
