FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -Colorado State safety Klint Kubiak was released from a Houston hospital Monday afternoon following tests that showed the junior had low blood pressure and a bleeding ulcer.
Kubiak dropped to a knee following pre-game warm-ups in the Rams' game against the University of Houston on Saturday.
Kubiak, whose father Gary is the coach of the Houston Texans, met his parents for dinner Friday night and planned to spend Sunday on the sidelines at the Texans game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Rams coach Sonny Lubick said he wasn't sure about the diagnosis concerning Kubiak's health.
``I think when they were in there in the scope they thought they could maybe try to fix that a little bit,'' Lubick said. ``But yet he still needed some transfusion yesterday and so I'm sure he lost a lot of blood. I can't say much more than that because I don't know.
Though Kubiak will be back in Colorado on Tuesday, his status for the team's game against Texas Christian University on Saturday is uncertain.
``I would say right now it would seem like it would be very doubtful,'' said Lubick. ``He's resilient and I know that Klint wants to play. I don't know how fast you recover from those things. Maybe if Klint got back and got some practice in Wednesday, maybe he could. I would say we should prepare that he would not be playing.''
If he can't play, it's yet another blow to the foundering Rams. Colorado State has the Mountain West Conference's second-worst pass defense, surrendering 373.7 yards.
They've started the season 0-3 and have lost 10 consecutive games dating back to last year, and seven straight games in the MWC.
The streak was nearly snapped when the Rams led the Cougars 24-10 in the third quarter, but Colorado State saw its lead evaporate and lost the game 38-27.
Lubick said he has no plans to take the redshirt off any of his players to help the struggling secondary.
``No you can't do that,'' Lubick said. ``The game doesn't go that way. You can't bring a guy in and in three days teach him how to play strong safety or free safety.''
