Houston chief Gary Kubiak returns to NFL action this weekend, just 15 days after suffering a mini-stroke during a game against Indianapolis.

The Texans' coach returned to work on Monday and will take charge of the game against Oakland on Sunday.

Kubiak collapsed on the field during half-time on November 2, and spent two nights in hospital before being released.

"I really don't remember a whole lot," he said. "I remember right before the half not feeling very good. Had a headache."

Although Kubiak is back at the helm for Sunday's game, doctors have insisted he carry out limited duties and can only work so many hours during the build-up to the match.

"I don't know how many I've got today, but I've still got plenty to do," Kubiak said.

The Texans will attempt to end a run of seven straight defeats against the Raiders after their latest loss against Arizona, which Kubiak found tough to watch from afar.

"Just hard to watch. Just was hard to sit there and watch a football game when you've been there the whole time for the last 30 years."
