Gary Kubiak

Just like there is no such thing as a minor surgery, there is nothing mini about a stroke, the good news is it appears Kubiak will be ok.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” that Kubiak suffered what doctors refer to as a mini-stroke when he collapsed on the Reliant Stadium sideline, according to a source in contact with the coach.

The official diagnosis is that Kubiak suffered a TIA, or transient ischemic attack, which occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery for a short time.

A TIA involves temporary but reversible loss of function, and doctors tell Rapoport there are no residual effects. A TIA is considered to be a warning that blood flow is not what it should be and can be seen as a precursor for a larger stroke.

It could have been much worse, hopefully Kubiak makes a full recovery.
