Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak was back at
practice Wednesday and could return to the sideline for Sunday's game against
Oakland after a one-week absence to recover from a mini-stroke.
Kubiak collapsed while running off the field at halftime two Sundays ago
against Indianapolis and was hospitalized after suffering a transient ischemic
attack. He missed last week's game against Arizona and returned to the team's
facility on a limited basis earlier this week.
"It's great to be back on the field and getting back to work," said Kubiak at
his usual Wednesday news conference. "I feel great today. I don't foresee any
reason why I won't be (coaching Sunday)."
Wade Phillips was the interim coach in Kubiak's absence. The Texans dropped a
27-24 decision to Indianapolis, blowing a 21-3 halftime lead after Kubiak
departed, and also suffered a 27-24 loss to the Cardinals last week.
Houston is mired in a seven-game losing streak after opening the season with a
pair of wins.
