HOUSTON (AP) - Texans coach Gary Kubiak has been released from a Houston hospital after suffering what the team said was a mini-stroke during Sunday night's loss to Indianapolis.

The team said the 52-year-old Kubiak suffered an transient ischemic attack at halftime. He is expected to make a full recovery, but the Texans said they aren't sure when he'll resume his coaching duties.

Kubiak released a statement through the team saying: "I've been through an ordeal and my focus now is to get back to good health."

Kubiak collapsed on the field and was rushed to a hospital. The Texans blew an 18-point lead without him and the 27-24 setback was the team's sixth straight loss.

The team didn't name an interim coach. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips took over on Sunday night.
