RTC: Texans try out kickers

Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans...

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Gary Kubiak suffered a "mini-stroke" at halftime of Sunday night's game. From the story, by NFL.com's Dan Hanzus, about his report: "The official diagnosis is that Kubiak suffered a TIA, or transient ischemic attack, which occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery for a short time and affects blood flow in the brain."

Texans kicker Randy Bullock's most recent struggles seem to have convinced the team to look at other options. They are working out three veteran kickers today, writes Mark Berman of Fox 26. Shayne Graham, Neil Rackers and Justin Medlock. Rackers and Graham are both former Texans. Medlock was released by the Raiders after training camp.

Practice was bizarre without Gary Kubiak yesterday, writes Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com. Left guard Wade Smith saw his black pick-up truck in the lot Monday morning, but it was left over from the previous night.
