A year ago, Gary Kubiak collapsed on the Houston Texans' sideline during a game against the Indianapolis Colts and was hospitalized with the equivalent of a mini-stroke.
Now, the Ravens offensive coordinator says he feels fine.
Kubiak was diagnosed last November with a transient ischemic attack, which occurs when blood flow to the brain is briefly interrupted. The condition involves stroke-like symptoms that can include sudden dizziness, numbness, vision loss or unconsciousness.
"I think I'm all right," said Kubiak, the former Texans head coach who was hired by the Ravens during the offseason after being fired by Houston. "Do I look all right? This league will give you some health issues. No, I feel fine. I'm fine. It's Week 10 in the NFL. I think everybody is a little tired right now. We have the bye week this week, so I know I'm looking forward to it just like everybody else, getting a little rest and getting fresh for these last six weeks."
With Kubiak having installed his version of the West Coast offense, the Ravens (6-4) rank 11th in total offense, ninth in rushing and 14th in passing heading into their bye.
"But I've really enjoyed myself," Kubiak said. "I've been very challenged trying to put in a new offense and do it really quickly. I told the players I know I'm asking a lot of them and a lot of the coaches for the first time around, but I'm in a hurry to get there, and I know they are, too.
"But I've enjoyed myself. I'm really looking forward to this run we have coming. Some big games to play in and we need to play well."
