Kubiak remains upstairs for a second straight week


Texans coach Gary Kubiak wanted to return to the sidelines, three weeks after suffering a transient ischemic attack while leaving the field at halftime of a game against the Colts.  For the second straight week, he’ll coach from upstairs at Reliant Stadium.

“I lost the war,” Kubiak joked with reporters on Friday, via a transcript provided by the team.

“I will be upstairs again,” Kubiak said.  “So that was decided [Thursday] evening.”

Moving forward, it’ll be a decision made one game at a time.

“I listen to [the doctors] and talk to them,” Kubiak said.  “I just say [that] I understand their decision.  Just glad to get back and be out there and go to work.  I’ll just keep listening to them and we’ll go week-to-week.”

Only six weeks remain in the season.  It’s possible only six weeks remain in Kubiak’s tenure as the Texans’ head coach.

The 2-8 Texans host the 1-9 Jaguars; the loser moves closer to securing the first overall pick in the 2014 draft.

    With the way NFL coachs come and go, taking their flawed schemes with them, transient ischemic attacks are a familiar hazard.

    Good. Keep him away from Keenum.

    Don’t pull Keenum this week Kubiak. Unfortunately, due to injuries, my fantasy team depends on it.

    steelhammer92 –

    I’m in the same situation…lost because of Kubiak last week. What made it even worse was 1) his putting in an F-Minus QB as a sub, and 2) his nonsensical explanation of why he did it.
