Houston's Gary Kubiak is expected to resume his head coaching duties in Sunday's home game against the Raiders, according to Kubiak hasn't coached the Texans since suffering a 'mini-stroke' at halftime of Houston's Nov. 3 loss to Indianapolis.

Kubiak was cleared to leave the hospital on Nov. 5, just two days after suffering the transient ischemic attack (TIA). TIA is considered a "warning stroke" and occurs by a temporary blood clot.

After being released from the hospital, Kubiak attended the Texans' practice on Nov. 7 and met with most of the team. Although he attended practice, Kubiak did not coach the Texans in their Week 10 game against Arizona.

Kubiak has had Week 11 targeted as his return date since last week and according to, the Texans eighth-year coach will build up his hours this week as he prepares to return to Houston's sideline. While Kubiak was out, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips served as interim coach.

Phillips' lone game as Houston's head coach didn't come without its problems. Safety Ed Reed said the Texans were 'outcoached' in the 27-24 loss to Arizona. That complaint led to Reed being released by Houston on Tuesday.
