Wade Phillips Taking Medical Leave of Absence from Texans

I don’t ever want to hear a fan, player or media make an excuse for a team not playing well because of injuries.

The Texans have been hit harder than any team in the league and they keep chugging along.  Now news is coming that their defensive coordinator Wade Phillips who has done an outstanding job will be out for a couple of weeks.

The Texans have lost their best players to injury throughout the season. Now they are losing their biggest offseason acquisition (by far) for a couple of weeks.

Mark Berman of FOX26 in Houston reports that defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will take a medical leave of absence for “a couple of weeks.”

No word on what the illness is, but we wish him the best and hope he comes back strong.
