Gary Kubiak hopeful of return to sidelines

Gary Kubiak says that he feels he has "a better chance" of being on the sidelines for the Houston Texans game this weekend.

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has said that he is keen for doctors to allow him to return to the sidelines this weekend.

Kubiak suffered a 'mini-stroke' during a game with the Indianapolis Colts at the start of the month, resulting in some time in hospital.

Despite a return to team duties, Kubiak has watched the last two Texans games from a booth rather than on the sidelines. However, he is hopeful that will change this Sunday when they take on the New England Patriots.

Kubiak told the club's website: "I have every intention of being on the field. I hope the doctors clear me. I think I've got probably a better chance than I had last week. That's the way I'd answer that question right now."

With the Texans currently on a nine-game losing streak, Kubiak's position as coach has come under threat in recent weeks.

The team sits bottom of the AFC South with a 2-9 record.
