Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak will, in fact, coach from the press box Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that the team decided Kubiak was well enough to return two weeks after suffering a mini-stroke, but will call plays from the box instead of the sideline. There was still some concern as recently as Friday as to whether Kubiak would be healthy enough to coach. Kubiak will resume his offensive play-calling duties and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison will move to the sideline, the Houston Chronicle reported. Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips will hold the challenge flag, but Kubiak said Friday he will retain all decision-making.
