The Texans haven’t said when they expect head coach Gary Kubiak to resume any of his job responsibilities in the wake of the transient ischemic attack that forced him to go to the hospital in the middle of Houston’s Week Nine game against the Colts.
Kubiak seems to be doing well in his recovery, though. We’ve already heard he’s been in frequent contact with defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who is serving as the interim head coach in Kubiak’s absence, and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison on the phone.
On Thursday, he stepped things up a notch beyond that. Phillips said after practice that Kubiak stopped by the team’s facility and spoke with the players before they were done with Thursday’s session.
“Coach Kub was there at the end of practice. He talked to the players for a bit and everyone was excited to see him,” Phillips said, via the team.
Phillips will be in charge when the team goes to Arizona for their date with the Cardinals this weekend. With Kubiak apparently on the road to recovery, we’ll likely find out in the near future how long that arrangement will be in place.
