Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak was released from the hospital Tuesday, two days after suffering what has been diagnosed as a transient ischemic attack, the team announced.

The team said that Kubiak is expected to make a full recovery and did not give a timetable on his return to the sidelines.

Kubiak collapsed while leaving the field at halftime of Sunday night's 27-20 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

A transient ischemic attack, or warning stroke, occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted briefly, and is caused typically by a blood clot or narrowed blood vessels.

"I've been through an ordeal, and my focus now is to get back to good health.
