HOUSTON – Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak will lead the team from the coach’s booth for the second straight week, the team announced Friday afternoon.

The Texans (2-8) host divisional rival, the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9), at noon on Sunday at Reliant Stadium as the team tries to snap an eight-game losing streak.

Doctors recommended that Kubiak coach from the booth a precautionary measure. The 52-year-old coach continues to recover from a mini-stroke he suffered more than two weeks ago during the team’s game the Indianapolis Colts.

Doctors said that Kubiak suffered a transient ischemic attack, or TIA, which occurs when blood flow to the brain is briefly interrupted, typically by a blood clot or narrowed blood vessels.

TIAs are often called mini-strokes and can cause stroke-like symptoms including sudden dizziness or unconsciousness. Experts say they are often a warning sign for a future stroke, particularly within three months of a TIA.
