Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak paid his team a visit Thursday as he continues to recuperate from a transient ischemic attack that briefly hospitalized him.
Kubiak is expected to make a complete recovery and return to coaching as soon as Nov. 17 against the Oakland Raiders.
Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips has taken over as interim coach in Kubiak's absence.
"Mostly that he missed them and how much he missed [being here]," said Phillips, relating Kubiak's message to the team. "You don't realize until you're away from it a little bit how much you miss the team and being around them and that kind of thing. And that he felt good. That was his message."
