This is VERY good news that he has been cleared to leave after two days of treatment and observation by some of the best medical professionals available in the world.  Obviously they are continuing conservative next steps in keeping the coach home this week to fully recover from a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), more commonly called a "mini-stroke", which he suffered at half-time of the game against the Colts last Sunday night at Reliant Stadium.

Texans' Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips will continue to fill in as interim Head Coach for the game against Arizona.  Coach Kubiak is expected to return to work next week.

I am sure everyone is breathing a sigh of relief at this news, and we all wish Coach Kubiak continued progress on a full and speedy recovery!
