Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak missed the team’s Week 10 match up as he continued to recover from the mini-stroke that he suffered more than a week ago, but his absence will now be over with the news he will be returning to the line up for this week’s game against the Oakland Raiders.
From ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
Texans HC Gary Kubiak is expected to coach Sunday vs. Raiders, per league source. He’s building up his hours this week.

Kubiak returned to the team facility on Monday, but he did not work a full day.
The idea was to ease Kubiak back to work to see how he would be able to hold up and he seems to be confident that he will be able to take on the stress and full load of preparing for an upcoming opponent.
With Kubiak back on the sidelines making the plays, the team will be hopeful that they can get back in the win column for only the third time this season.
