Gary Kubiak Profile
Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips has been upgraded to good condition after undergoing surgery on his kidney and gallbladder and initially being listed as stable.
Phillips is on medical leave for the next two games against the Carolina Panthers and the Indianapolis Colts.
The team released the following statement: "Wade Phillips continues to improve from his surgery. His condition has been upgraded to good. Again, the family requests privacy and no further information will be released at this time."
Texans coach Gary Kubiak is encouraged about Phillips' prospects.
"He's doing really well," Kubiak told reporters today. "Everything went good. It's my understanding he could be getting to move to his room as we speak right now. I don't know. When I talked to his wife this morning, that was the plan. Everything's going good. We just need to get him on the road to recovery and we need to handle the football while he's gone.
"I want to respect Wade and his wife's wishes. They'll handle that, but everything went according to plan yesterday. We just got to support him and just make sure he's taken care of himself before he comes back."
There is no timeline on your health. He's got to take care of himself. We've got to take care of the football and the good news is we're on the way to getting healthy and getting back, so that's the key."
