According to the American Heart Association, one third of those who suffer a TIA will go on to have a stroke within one year. TIA's are generally quick and since the obstruction is temporary the likelihood of permanent injury to the brain is very low and recovery can be very quick. But they do serve as a warning for the potentially more severe stroke in the future.
According to Ian Rapoport, the Texans remain optimistic Kubiak will make a full recovery.
