Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has been cleared to return home following his collapse on the field at halftime, Sunday night as reported by multiple outlets.
Houston Chronicle reporter John McClain was first to report Kubiak was cleared to return home.
An article by cbssports.com said Kubiak suffered a mini-stroke Sunday night when he collapsed at the 24-yard lime at halftime. The CBS article said:
“TIA is considered a “warning stroke” and occurs by a temporary blood clot.”
It also looks as though Kubiak will be unable to coach this week’s game in Arizona against the 4-4 Cardinals, who are in third place in the NFC West. Wade Phillips took over as head coach in the second half of the game Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts.
With the season record at 2-6 for the Texans, Coach Kubiak needs to focus on his health first and let the rest of the worries about the Texans go other the rest of the organization.
His health is what matters here, because it is just a football game in the grand scheme of life, and his heath is what is most important to not only himself, but his family.
The CBS article said Kubiak could coach following this week’s game:
“That timeframe could obviously change based on how Kubiak feels (or how his family feels) but for now it appears the coach got a pretty good bill of health and managed a very quick recovery.”
The Toro Times wishes Coach Kubiak a speedy recovery.
