Wade Phillips undergoes surgery on his kidney, gallbladder


Though the Texans and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips were officially tight-lipped on Wednesday regarding the surgical procedure that Phillips would be undergoing, the team has announced a statement that sheds more light on the situation.

“Wade Phillips has completed the surgery on his kidney and gallbladder,” the team said.   “He is in stable condition.  In order to respect his privacy, the family has requested there be no further information given at this time.”

The specific reason for the surgery remains unknown, and the Texans have said that Phillips will miss two games.  They cost the Panthers on Sunday, then visit the Colts the following Saturday.

We wish Coach Phillips a full and quick recovery.

    Congenital problems. Wade inherited a Bum kidney and gall bladder.

    I assume “surgery on the gall bladder” meant removing same. Not sure about the kidney.

    Geez I know its just a Texans article, but “host” the panthers this weekend not “cost” them. And they travel to Indy on Thursday not Saturday.

    Been through through the bladder surgery myself, the pain is unreal at times and will last for a few hours. Glad he had it done and hurry back my friend, as we miss you COACH……….

    As a gastroenterologist I pray he has a benign problem.

    What is this gonna cost the Panthers? Is Phillips somehow gonna make the Panthers pay for it?

    Need more info here this is eating at me.
