Houston (CBS Houston)– The Houston Texans host the AFC East-leading Patriots (8-3) at Reliant Stadium on Sunday and head coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday that he could coach from the sidelines with his (2-9) team.
“I have every intention being on the field,” Kubiak said. “I have a better chance than last week.”
The past two weeks coach Kubiak called plays from the press box in both home losses to the Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Coach Kubiak is hoping to get cleared by his doctors after suffering a “mini-stroke” as he was heading off the field during halftime in the Nov. 3 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
The Texans and Patriots last meeting was Dec. 10, 2012 where the Patriots won 42-14. Houston is looking to snap a franchise-record nine-game losing streak.
