Prayers go out to Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak collapsed during half time of the Texans game this weekend and it is being reported that Kubiak suffered a mini stroke. He will not be on the sideline this weekend for the Texans.

The head coaching gig is a stressful position and these guys spend hours upon hours of their days preparing for games. Health concerns have to come with the position. The Denver Broncos head coach John Fox is having heart surgery today.

The Texans have been struggling this season and there have been thoughts that Kubiak could be on his final season with the team. I am sure he has been hearing all that talk in the media and that has added to his stress levels.

While Kubiak is resting, the coaching duties will likely be taken by defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. Phillips took over the game last weekend and has the most head coaching experience on the sideline for the Texans.

Prayers again go out to Gary Kubiak and the family.
