Broncos HC Gary Kubiak released the following statement regarding this condition:
“I’m feeling much better and am thankful for everyone’s thoughts and well-wishes. 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.
“Greek and the medical team did an outstanding job taking care of me and getting this figured out. I’ve made a lot of positive changes health-wise in recent years and will continue to listen to doctors.
“I’ll be at home this week, resting and getting healthy, and I look forward to rejoining our team on Monday.”
The Broncos president John Elway announced Monday that HC Gary Kubiak is taking the week off after he was taken to the hospital last night for complex migraines.
Elway announced that Joe DeCamillis will be the team’s interim head coach with offensive coordinator Rick Dennison calling plays and Wade Phillips continuing to run the team’s defense.
In regards to Kubiak’s condition, Elway said he’s “very encouraged” about Kubiak’s health but he’s still very tired. Doctors made it clear that Kubiak will need a good week of rest before he can return to the team.
Considering that Kubiak suffered a stroke during a game a few years ago when he was still the Texans’ head coach, it makes plenty of sense for the Broncos to be as cautious as possible with his health.
Denver is on a short week, as they’re scheduled to take on the Chargers this Thursday.
Kubiak, 55, has led the Broncos to a record of 16 and 5 (76.2 percent) over the past year and a half which includes a Super Bowl title last year.
We’ll have more regarding Kubiak and his condition as the news is available.
