Gary Kubiak is gone, fired by the Houston Texans on Friday, and he won't be the last of this season's NFL coaches to be asked to hand over his headset. So who else will be gone after this season? A look at the candidates who could be kaput: JIM SCHWARTZ, Detroit: The Lions, who play at Philadelphia on Sunday, have a one-game lead over Chicago in the NFC North. Detroit probably needs to do more than simply win the NFC North to save Schwartz's job. Matthew Stafford has been healthy all season, whereas Chicago, Green Bay and Minnesota have used multiple quarterbacks.

Story line: Two of the AFC's top teams have only three prior meetings but could be destined for a playoff rematch. New England's Tom Brady has thrown just one pass for an interception in the last six games, and will confront a defense weakened by injuries to four starters. Houston's J.J. Watt will be active, however, and his 15 deflected passes caused Patriots Coach Bill Belichick to joke he was going to have defenders hold brooms in front of Brady in practice. Texans said: "You know you're going to have to raise your level of play and play as good as you can possibly play.

The name is Kubiak. Sometimes, on fan-made grandstand banners, it has been written this way: QBiak. But it is a name rarely written anywhere, because Gary Kubiak rarely does anything worth writing about. He is an understudy nobody pays to see, a stuntman nobody sees on the marquee, a part-time quarterback so seldom put to work, he was practically an eighthback. Until Sunday. Until this, the last football game of his life. Championship game, American Football Conference, winner to the Super Bowl.

The sight of Gary Kubiak taking the place of John Elway at quarterback for the Denver Broncos during the fourth quarter of Sunday's AFC championship game might not have filled other Buffalo Bills with dread, but it did worry the home team's quarterback. "As soon as I saw him walk on the field, I thought, 'Oh, no!' because I've seen Kubiak come in before where he's turned things around and moved the ballclub down the field," Jim Kelly said. "He's a heck of a competitor."

Jonathan Vilma's season is over and his future on the football field is in doubt. The New Orleans Saints placed Vilma to injured reserve, ending his season - and possibly his career - only three days after he had returned for his first game of this season. Vilma began the season on short-term injured reserve because of an arthroscopic procedure in August on his left knee, which has troubled him through multiple surgeries over two-plus seasons. The designation allowed the 10th-year linebacker to return to the active roster in Week 9. Vilma was activated Saturday and played 12 defensive snaps in a 26-20 loss to his former team, the New York Jets, on Sunday.

One NFL coach falls ill on the golf course, and is undergoing open-heart surgery two days later. Another drops to his knees walking to the locker room at halftime of a nationally televised game, suffering what is later diagnosed as a mini-stroke. In a league that reports on the health of players on a daily basis, the health of coaches largely has been an afterthought. But after a weekend in which Denver's John Fox and Houston's Gary Kubiak suffered disturbing health scares, the intense pressure of their jobs has come under sharper scrutiny.

Houston Texans Coach Gary Kubiak is "feeling good" Monday morning but remains hospitalized for additional testing to determine exactly why he collapsed at halftime Sunday night, an unnamed source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Dehydration is being considered as at least a partial cause, but doctors are also testing to be sure nothing more significant could be the reason Kubiak fell to his knees in pain while heading to the locker room during the Texans' "Sunday Night Football" game against the Indianapolis Colts, Schefter is reporting.

Houston Texans Coach Gary Kubiak is optimistic Arian Foster will be ready for the regular-season opener after the star running back aggravated a hamstring injury in Saturday's exhibition in San Francisco. Foster, the NFL's leading rusher in 2010, left the field in the first quarter of Houston's 30-7 victory, favoring the left hamstring that he strained early in training camp. Foster sat out Houston's exhibition opener, then rushed five times for 47 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans' 27-14 win over New Orleans on Aug. 20. He was hurt on his eighth carry against the 49ers.
