kteela: Hopefully this isn't a trifecta in play. Foxxy's out for 2 months with heart surgery tomorrow or Tuesday. Yikes.
farbekrieg: Maybe its a denver thing (kubiak spent a long time on the those denver sidelines as well.)
JasonOfOrillia: Eat now?

kteela: They're saying "dehydration" on the local news. That means "anxiety" or "overdose" in Los Angeles, so who knows?
SlothB77: Speaking of texans collapsing...

robsul82: Blew it against Seattle, blew it against the team that beat Seattle...You're killing your coach, Texans!
Earguy: kteela: They're saying "dehydration" on the local news. That means "anxiety" or "overdose" in Los Angeles, so who knows?Saying dehydration, other news reports saying he felt lightheaded and dizzy. Immediate reports were that he couldn't stand, couldn't open his eyes.Sounds to me like he had an attack of vertigo. Since it occurred while standing, it's probably not benign positional vertigo, though I'm sure they checked for it. Ménière's disease is certainly within the differential diagnosis. Or, it could be a simple case of vestibular neuronitis or labyrinthitis or idiopathic.Now, it's possible he's taking blood pressure medication, specifically a diuretic like hydrochlorothyazide, which would contribute to dehydration, reduce the blood pressure too much, and can make you feel lightheaded and dizzy. However, the fact that he couldn't open his eyes suggests that he was experiencing nystagmus, which is an indicator of vertigo, and does not occur with blood pressure drops.
