Joe Robbins/Getty Images(DENVER) — Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak is back home after being hospitalized following Sunday night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Kubiak, 55, was originally taken to the hospital with what the team said was “flu-like symptoms.” He was released Monday afternoon after being diagnosed with a “complex migraine condition,” Broncos executive vice president of football operations and general manager John Elway told reporters Monday.
Elway said Kubiak will be off for the remainder of the week, meaning he will not be coaching the team’s game against the San Diego Chargers Thursday night.
The doctors “thought the prognosis for him was very, very good and they think that he’s going to spend this week, he’s going to have this week off, he’s going to be back on Monday,” Elway said.
Broncos special-teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis will step in for Kubiak while he’s gone.
Kubiak later said in a statement that he will be at home getting rest and looks forward to rejoining the team.
“It’s tough not being there with our team this week, but I’ve got great confidence in Joe D, our coordinators and coaching staff, and all of our players,” he said.
