Locker Room Buzz: Indianapolis Colts
By Mike Wells
HOUSTON – Observed in the locker room after the Indianapolis Colts’ 27-24 victory over the Houston Texans:
Passing along thoughts: The Colts expressed concern for Texans coach Gary Kubiak immediately after the game. Kubiak was taken to a hospital after collapsing on the field as he was heading toward the locker room at halftime. “All our thoughts and prayers are with coach Kubiak and his family,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “We just pray for, and obviously hope, that it’s nothing serious and that he gets back to health and as soon as possible gets back to his team.”
No concussion: Pagano said receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey did not suffer a concussion in the third quarter. Heyward-Bey left the game to get evaluated after colliding with a Texans cornerback on a slant pass deep in Houston territory. He had one catch for 11 yards.
Winning at Reliant Stadium: Colts quarterback Andrew Luck entered Sunday’s game with a 0-2 record at Reliant Stadium despite having played only one NFL game there. He lost a playoff game at the stadium when he was a junior at Stratford High School.
